The Cairngorms


The Cairngorms are a firm favourite of the club's, and we try to get at least one or two trips there a year. It's slightly further than the Western Highlands, but on faster roads and so the journey time isn't much longer.

Aviemore is a popular choice, not just with the club, as during the skiing season the place can be heaving with snow-sports enthusiasts. This doesn't mean that some fantastic secluded hiking can't be had - if you pick the correct weather conditions (winter blizzards), you won't see another sole all day, even those only a few metres away!
