Solo. After Braeriach wild camp. neil hutton20/06/2017
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

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

SMMC Mid-Summer bivy, with Bill Bracewell and Liz Mackay.clashcityrocker22/06/2010
A RRMC bus trip to Linn o'Dee. I stayed over at Glen Ey YH. Miserable morning so decided to walk through the Lairig Ghru to Aviemore and get a train home. However by the time I reached Corrour Bothy the weather changed and the skies cleared and the sun came out so decided to forget about going home. Did the 3 on this ridge descending after Sgorr and Lochain Uaine towards Glen Einich and out via Rothiemurchis Forest to Coylumbridge. another late night managed to get a bed in Aviemore YH. Brilliant walk.munromurph01/01/2010
