First couple of days of our family two weeks holiday to Coylumbridge – had been allowed some days to walk some of the Cairngorms. This is the first. Parked at the Cairngorms car park and initially headed up the tourist path before branching off towards Fiacaill between Coire an t-Sneachda and Coire an Lochain.
GPS track - reduced to 500 waypoints for WH
Initially clear but was soon in the clag and mist over the top and then down Coire Raibert alongside the stream.
On a previous walk up Ben Macdui, I’d hoped to return via Loch Avon but had to divert due to weather. It’s an area I’ve always wanted to visit and was looking forward to it.

Was on Cairn Gorm the following day and the weather was still great. Sadly I didn't take a very interesting route though.

We walked Bynack More yesterday - starting off in hot sunshine and ending up in wind, cloud and rain - but really enjoyed it none the less, enjoyed looking at your summit pics as our view was somewhat limited! We visited the Barns - didn't realise there are more on the other surrounding hills.
