This is a strange one, Carn aosda and cairnwell would be great viewpoints if its wasn't for the ski resort. It isn't till you get over the back of the cairnwell and head towards Carn a'Gheoidh the walk starts getting alot better in my opinion. The walk itself would be relatively easy if it wasn't for the snow and ice which made it take a bit longer than I was expecting. Just a shame with all the broken sh**e at the top of the cairnwell!
Definately worth a day out though, it feels a bit like cheating starting so high up.
P. S this is the first time I have posted any of my walks so excuse my lack of structure/detail!

Nice photos, good to see the views I missed. I've done these 3 hills twice, both times I saw nothing in the clag (except the ski resort mess)
