September 2008 – Trans-Cairngorm Trek

No Comments Written by Tam on 11/01/2009 in past expeditions, walking.

View across the tents, west up the River GairnAdie, Ste and I headed up to the Cairngorms, leaving a car in Aviemore and a car in Braemar to attempt an ambitious trans-Cairngorm trek. We had some nice weather although low cloud came down for the latter half of the week. Starting at Braemar and walking the eastern peaks is incredibly remote, compared to the well-walked Cairn Gorm / Ben Macdui area and the Braeriach ridge. We found some fantastic wild camp sites during the week, experienced some sub-zero temperatures on the tops overnight, visited the newly-furbished (now with chemical loo) Corrour bothy, and made it back out to Aviemore within the week. We might not have conquered all of the peaks that we were aiming for though 😉
