Day out by myself, visibility good, followed track up on to Meall a Bhuachaille before breaking track across to Cregan Gorm, was going to head towards Creag a' Chaillich but forecasted highwinds and poor weather arrived earlier than predicted so made my way back to the track and car park.

Used crampons, took ice axe but not required.

Area : The Cairngorms

The Cairngorms are ‘a little piece of the arctic in Scotland’ according to the SMC Munros Guide and the area contains many of the tallest peaks in the East Highlands. Ben Macdui (1309m), Cairn Gorm (1244m) and Braeriach (1296) are probably three of the better known and the whole area is full of steep corries and high plateaux. Access to the mountains is typically from Aviemore or Braemar.
