The other morning I tried out a different walk using a new guide that has just been published by the Glenshee Tourist Association. They have 22 trails in the booklet with great descriptions. I only went the 10 minute drive up to Bridge of Cally and took a track at the back of the Bridge of Cally hotel which takes you along to a small parking area. It was a lovely warm morning only spoilt by mist which didn't seem keen on clearing. There are over 8 miles of tracks to walk and it is also an excellent place to go mountain biking. Blackcraig Forest is managed by the Forestry Commission and there has been a lot of logging going on at the start of the walk. Lots of birdlife around and I came across a pool of tadpoles.
