Anyone been up by the Geldie Burn lately? I’m planning a trip through Glen Tilt from Blair Atholl soon but wondering whether the recent heavy rain has made it unfordable. I’d hate to reach the Geldie Burn and have to turn round and ride the ~25 miles to Blair!
No specifics on the Geldie but water levels in Feshie etc have been rapidly returning to normal. They were very low until the last week or so. Personally, I’d risk it. I’ll be crossing a couple of weeks from now but I guess that’s too late for you.
Mountain watercourses like the Geldie rise and fall quickly due to the high rainfall and thin soils/saturated ground. A couple of hours can make quite a difference. It’s another reason why knowing the weather forecast before you set out is important.
