A great morning in Aviemore, at the ski centre car park and away at 6:30. Quite a straightforward walk up to Ben Macdui a great path most of the way and lots of caring to follow through the stoney bits. Came across a herd of reindeer just below the final ascent to Ben Macdui got the top just in time to get some photos and watch the cloud roll in. Back down the way I came and off to Cairngorm, again quite a good well used path for the most part and then lots of cairns heading up the climbs. Quite steep to get up Cairngorm but well worth it, lovely views all round. Headed back via the ski building, a lovely cobbled path down to the building quite steep though. An easy well maintained path all the way back to the car park. A few rumbles of thunder on the way down which later in the down turned into a torrential downpour with hail stones.
