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:
