Indian summer in the CairnGorms in October!

Fri 2nd Oct
What a day – Just the best, indeed!
With Roger C and Andy T – jog/walk from Derry Lodge to Corrour Bothy and dumped my overnight gear (thanks Roger & Andy for the help with my heavyweight sleeping bag…!).
No problem going up to Devil’s Point with the load off my back! On to Loch nan Stuirteag for lunch, then the longer haul up to Wells of Dee. BraeRiach was a must do with such a perfect day. Sharp descent down Garbh Choire, where Roger & Andy headed on down and I went up to pick my way through the cliffs to Lochan Uaine (west) – a wee bit tricky at times. Then descended down through the boulders to Lairig Ghru and down to Corrour Bothy for the night. Well knackered after all that, so was very glad to spend the night there.
