Cairngorm and the northern Corries

Last weekend Neil and I followed the good weather which MWIS showed to be in the East Highlands and choose to do an short walk on the Cairngorm Plateau. The ski resort had opened for the start of the skiing season on Saturday and the carpark, funicular railway, Ciste piste and immediate surroundings were quite busy with Skiers and snowboarders, but once clear of these area they rest of the mountain was quiet.

We chose to walk clockwise passing the Ptarmigan, Cairngorm Summit, and along the Northern Corries (Corie an Sneachda, Coire an Lochain) and back along the ridge above the corrie.

The start of the our walk was in thick cloud, but by the time we arrived at the summit of Cairngorm the cloud became more broken and we enjoyed some lovely clear stretches.
