Friday 14th - Sunday 16th December 2012 

Christmas time again already! DMC returned to Muir Cottage by the Linn of Dee near Braemar for our Christmas weekend trip. There wasn't quite as much snow as there had been the previous year, but every bit as much turkey, stuffing, bread sauce, roast veg, xmas pudding, brandy sauce, mince pies etc etc! Thankfully it was also a fairly active weekend so we could work up enough of an appetite for the big meal on the Saturday and then burn it off afterwards on the Sunday! The mountain bikers were out testing their snow tyres on the icy tracks of the Southern Cairngorms whilst hillwalkers were up Carn Liath (just N of Braemar) and skiers were on- and off-piste around Glenshee and the Lecht (Lecht was best, but we couldn't get there on the Saturday due to closed roads - Sunday made up for that though!). Meanwhile others were out doing various other walks around the area. A fun and festive weekend was enjoyed by all!
