The 4000ft peaks of the Cairngorms

Walk 5 of the Highest Mountains in Scotland

Fancy a challenge for you and your friends? Tick off 5 of the highest Munros in the Cairngorms. These are 5 of the only 9 mountains over 4000ft! We will have 3 days of walking.

Our first day will take us up onto the arctic like Cairngorm Plateau where we will climb Ben Macdui and Cairngorm. Not forgetting to keep an eye out for the Grey Man who reputedly haunts these mountains. It is a good start and the perfect warm up to our trip.
Our next couple of days see’s us loading our rucksacks and making our way through the highest mountain pass in the country the Lairg Ghru. Depending on conditions we may camp high but more than likely we will camp in the shadow of the Devil’s Point in Glen Dee. Our next day will see us shouldering our packs and heading back over the fine mountains of Cairn Toul, Angel’s Peak and Braeriach. A great high level hike we seldom drop below the 3000ft contour as we circumnavigate the Garbh Corrie where the oldest snow field in Scotland is located.
