After walking in Scotland for 8 days and seeing about 3 people on the mountains, it was heartening to see lots of hikers from all over the world enjoying the delights of the King of the Cairngorms (including a 4.5 year old on his 6th munro!) From the ski car park on the usual route (except we treated ourselves to the luxury of a final descent in the funicular railway). Clear sunny day - magnificent.callumorr28/07/2016
