From the Sugar Bowl car park climbed Braeriach over Stob na Laurige. I was convinced by a teacher I met part way that I should do the other Munros. So I went on to Carn na Criche, The Angels Peak, Cairn Toul, Stob Coire an t Saighdeir and The Devils Point. I then went down to Corrour and the long walk North on the Lairig Ghru and back through the Chalamain Gap. The weather was warm and sunny with cloud free skies I got burnt. Wildlife included Snow Bunting, Grey Wagtail, Red Grouse, Ptarmigan a Lizard near Corrour and a Roe Deer near the Wells of Dee. Walk distance about 23 miles in 11 hours 30 minutes. Tiring but great day. The plateaux is very special in the UK hills.isabelle31/05/2017

Climbed with Sergey on DMC trip to Mill Cottage. Superb weather.electricfox17/09/2016
With Diane Bruce, Mo Burridge 2 collies & Kasi. Dry, warm but with passing cloud cover on the tops. Small patches of snow left, the dogs loved that bit. Chalamain Gap didn't disappoint have been wanting to scramble through that for a long time. Would the rusting remains on the hillside be the remains of crashed aircraft? Not a busy hill despite it being a bank holiday saw max 10 other peopleLizzieG30/05/2016

A massive circular walk to Braeriach from the Rothiemurchus Forest. Wet and windy on top leading to a difficult descent to Gleann Eanaich made better by a siting of a Mountain hare. Beautiful sunshine on the long return leg to Rothiemurchus Forest.Ginger Dave29/08/2015

Braeriach and Sron na Lairige, a long walk in the clouds.rhalstead27/06/2013
Walked in Thurs 20th from Gen Feshie to camp on Tom Dubh. Wake on solstice to total silence, wind free. First sound is a bird song, then tumbling water as I cross first stream up to Cairn Toul. Wisps of cloud hang like a jellyfish with numerous tendrils hanging down, above Beinn Bhrotain to the south. CT for the third time SaLU for the second time and as I head for the Braeriach plateau, frustratingly a bank of cloud rolls over. Meet Canadian guy, Mark in the clagg, we wander the plateau a little disorientated towards eastern cliffs. Quite a bit of confusion and uncertainty, eventually get there, mist is thinning. As we part, I head further NE towards my northern Murdo. Hot and clear by this time. On way back I contour round the western edge of the plateau look down into Loch Coire an Lochain and across tops to Carn na Criche.vegibagger21/06/2013
Up from Sugar Bowl Car Park, over Sron Na Lairige, back same way. Men were working on path, they'd been flown in last week and were spending 3 months in a cabin that had also been flown in: https://en-gb.facebook.com/CairngormWildernessContractstsharp10/06/2013

Early start from Glenmore Lodge with Maggs, Roy and Peter (Roy's cousin from Henley). Thru' Chalamain Gap and across Lairig Ghru and up into clouds that never lifted. So no view and wet from persistent mist but enjoyable and not as haed as I'd expected.dave neilson16/06/2012
Saw a plectrophenax nivalis here, snow bunting and a rarer sighting of a Dutchman who was on his 100th Munro. He was a happy chappy. Company: Soloiandesbottes02/06/2012
