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.
