A fine morning to wake up in the CairnGorms

Sat 3rd October
A great sleep in Corrour Bothy – and after a good breakfast, headed south to Allt Garbh, and found track up towards Beinn Bhrotain.
Followed the Allt Garbh to Coire an t-Sneachtda, three quarters of the way up to Beinn Bhrotain, and then into some cloud, so only about 100m visibility on the top. Super walk up, some of it on the granite slabs in the burn. Also a great descent, easy running back down to collect the bags, some lunch and a wee rest in the sunshine….
Then up through the heather to Sgor Mor, in the sunshine. Interesting granite slabs on top. Could have routed across the tops back direct to Linn of Dee – but my bike was at Derry Lodge….
Descent down Allt a Choire Dhuibh to Gleann Laoigh Beag – slow going with the baggage. Very glad to reach the track and then Derry Lodge.
