Extracts from Noel Coward's song written at the begining of WW2 in 1940.
And Devon is down the drain
For drake is hurrying West, lads
There are dark clouds hurtling through the sky
And it's no good whining
And the outlook's absolutely vile
Mount Keen @ 939m is the most easterly Munro in Scotland (A Munro being the name given to hills in Scotland over 914.4 m there being a total of 284). The assent we took was from the end of Glenesk where there is a car park. The initial approach is up Glen Mark for 3.5km to the Queens Well, a granite imperial crown which sits on top of a natural spring bubbling out of the ground and marks the spot where Queen Victoria and her entourage stopped for a picnic on one of their jaunts over the hills from Balmoral in September 1861.
Having a laugh and lunch at the top and it was a "silly hat" kind of day too!
(but it does keep you warm)
