Cairngorm Club bus meet. Solo. I started at Spittal of Glenmuick and first went to the summit of Meall Coire na Saobhaidhe. From there I descended to the col with Cac Carn Beag and climbed its NW ridge to the summit. I continued to Cac Carn Mòr. It was now very misty so navigation was done carefully. I descended via the Glas Allt and Glas-allt-shiel and then on the track on the NW side of Loch Muick. I met several other members of the club from time to time, particularly on the summit of Lochnagar.pwbellarby10/01/1999

Cairngorm Club bus meet. Solo. I left Spittal of Glen Muick and ascended Little Pap and Cuidhe Crom on the way to Carn Cac Mòr and then Cac Carn Beag. Several other members reached there about the same time via a variety of routes including a party who completed Black Spout Gully (LH branch) and another who completed Black Spout Gully (RH branch). All parties in Black Spout Gully reported snow rather soft, but the climb worthwhile. I descended via Glas Allt Shiel. There was very little snow (apart from Black Spout Gully) and the weather very good so large numbers reached the summit of Lochnagar.pwbellarby11/01/1998
