For our adventure up to Ben Macdui we started at the Cairngorms ski centre and followed a good path to the right hand side of the ski centre.

When we got back to the car after climbing Ben Macdui it was about 12 o'clock and we didn't feel too tired therefore we decided to climb Braeriach as well after a quick spot of lunch :D

We drove down to the Sugarbowl car park and started our walk up to Braeriach from there.

From the car park we crossed over the road and followed a path which lead us over a bridge.

Looking across to Cairn Toul and Angel's peak is one of those views you'll always remember
