Nothing beats a ‘wee’ wander! If you had planned to go up Derry Cairngorm this way, now that would have been daft! :wink: I like this part of the Cairngorms, especially Loch Avon. :D I hope to return to the area next year.

Not a daft route at all - just a bit longer but worth it to take in Loch Avon. :wink:

Thanks dogplodder - it took me years to finally get to Loch Avon - hopefully I'll get back again fairly soon.
