Second time in the Highlands and looking for our first Munro so went for the simple Cairngorm route. Very cold, windy, snow showers but once at the summit cleared and it was perfect ! No route description as it is well known but some pictures for interest ....

Lovely route photos. Is the sky really that blue, it's just brilliant? With the mild air coming in I hope this is not the last of the Winter snow!
