The second day of our weekend in Braemar, resulted in walking up to Morrone straight from our accommodation.

This was a nice simple walk, lasting only 2 hours. The weather was surreal, starting in lovely sunshine, then from the summit, watching the Cairngorms being hit by sporadic snow showers, then when back at the accommodation, packing away in the heavy snow. It really was Four Seasons in one Day!!! Again I really enjoyed this, and hope you like the photos :D
