It may shine, it may rain, but whatever happens with the weather you are sure to enjoy this exploration of one of the Angus glens.

A really good day walk along the shore of Loch Lee and then follows the banks of the River Lee. The route then climbs steeply past the Falls of Unich and the Falls of Damff, before going round the back of Craig Maskeldie (option to climb to the top at 687m - 2254ft) and dropping down to Cairn Lick for the views to complete a circuit of the glen.

This walk is liable to be boggy so please come prepared!

If the weather is poor, this walk may be adapted so that we stay lower down around the falls and the loch.

A very good description of the walk (plus maps) is given in the Walk Highlands Website (http://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/angus/loch-lee.shtml)

After the walk, we may go to Rosie's Bakehouse in Brechin or to a suitable pub for a bite to each and something to drink.
