Other routes and challenges
Derry Cairngorm lends itself to inclusion in a variety of different combinations. On its own, it would make a good circuit ascending via Carn Crom and descending via the Hutchison hut.
The Ben Macdui route above could be extended by first ascending Carn a' Mhaim to make an excellent round of three Munros.
