Everyday Adventurer Gary Hodgson – Cold Cairngorms

A cold but dry day in The Cairngorms. First walking day for my group on their 6 day mini adventure across the Highlands.

Our trip is making use of the wonderful railway lines across the Highlands, a holiday in itself. After a short limbering up stroll on a 2 hr walk along the Speydide Way yesterday afternoon it was a big day for them in the mountains today.

We headed into Coire an t Sneachda and encouraged by calm and dry weather we went up the Goat Track onto the Plateau. It was a definite hat and gloves day. We saw plenty of ptarmigan and not a lot of folk. A chilly NW breeze and feeling like winter not far away. Off to Skye tomorrow.
