I started at dawn at Linn of Dee, and could enjoy breakfast in the pine wood north of Derry Lodge.

This is where I found shelter. Hutchinson Memorial Hut. If you look well, you'll see two Dundee fellows in the window. We were four people in the bothy this night. The fourth one was a morning bird from Newtonmore, and he left early.
Image
Beinn Mheadhoin gets a high ranking.

A wee taste of winter.

The highest positioned loch in UK. Loch Etchachan.

Then I went back to the bothy, and spent some time cooking, eating and reading the curious incidence of the dog in the nighttime. Good book.
Image
The next day was a wee bit more foggy.
Beinn a'Chaorainn.

Image
I walked for ages, and I just had to take a picture of - something.
Image
The cairn on Beinn Bhreac.
Image
The cairn on Meall an Lundain is very properly built.

That was all from a late November trip to the Cairngorms.
