Everyone has them - those rather non-descript Sundays when, despite the best intentions the night before when the rucksack's packed and the sandwiches are made, an uncertain grey sky outside tempts you to spend rather too long lazing about in bed and, in the process, the notion of an early start is firmly knocked on the head. Badandun Hill in Angus is perfect fodder for just such an occasion.

Perched between Glen Isla and forested Glen Finlet, an approach from Kirkton of Glenisla in the south is perhaps the most rewarding, taking in the tranquil fishing spot of Loch Shandra on the way out while the day's goal remains in view throughout.
