Lairig Ghru

The surrounding mountains on both sides of the Lairig Ghru tower above you creating a dark, remote ‘V’ shaped gap, with the massive Ben Macdui on one side, Braeriach on the other. The pass gives a rich variety of woodland and mountain scenery. It truly is the best mountain pass in Scotland.

There is a good variety of mountain flora along the pass and the area is full of history, we look forward to sharing this with you on our walk.

Lochnagar and the 5 White Mounth Munros

The Scottish Mountaineering Club guide book for the Cairngorms, written by Adam Watson, states that Lochnagar surpasses all other hills in the North East and we agree. The hills of the Mounth are simply stunning. The ground is more fertile compared to the Cairngorm plateau, so you will find more vegetation and wildlife as a result, including some very rare plants on the northern facing corries. Mountain Hare and Ptarmigan are often seen, as are Red Deer and occasionally the magnificent Golden Eagle.

The area is also full of history, we look forward to sharing this with you on our walk.

Lochnagar returning via Glas Allt Shiel

A stunning hill walk up to beautiful Lochnagar. We will also walk over part of the White Mounth. We will come off the hill via the beautiful waterfall of Glas Allt and a visit to Queen Victoria’s (widows) home on the banks of Loch Muick.

19km.

Ben Macdui and the Cairngorm Plateau

The subarctic terrain of the plateau is unlike anything else in Scotland. In her book, The Living Mountain, Nan Shepherd describes the plateau as the true summit of the mountains, the tops of Macdui etc being just eddies on the surface.

Ptarmigan are often seen, as are snow buntings. We may bump into the local reindeer herd. Mountain flora on the plateau is again quite unique, your guide will point out the interesting features and tell stories of the past as you walk. Once you’ve been on the plateau, you will feel the need to return.
