From the base at Cairngorm ski centre, we headed out west and south to the base on the Fiacaill Coire An T-Sneachda. This fantastic grade 1 scramble gives amazing veiws over both the Cories an Lochain and T-Sneachda. The scramble was great at times, with climbing moves and very exposed! Once up on Cairn Lochan, we strode out along the plataue, stopping once for some lunch, and made our way up the last ascent to Ben MacDui, the 2nd highest Munro! After taking in the panorama, we b-lined strait towrds the north top, and dropped down to the edge around Loch Avon. Down this side, there were huge patches of snow, we ran, jumped and skied down, we even saw a ski tourist! Coutining round the ridge towards Stob Coire An T-Sneachda, we had to pass a snow birdge, which Jonny broke, and the others had to walk further up! From Fiacaill A' Choire Chais, we had the last 100m shoot up to Cairn Gorm; #7. Some more food, then a long slog down to the top of the Cairngorm Funiculair Mountain Hut, and finByronHaywood20/04/2019

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
