Big Mountain Weekend

Guided walking weekend - Munro walking in the Cairngorms

Sat: Carn Ban Mor & Sgorr Goaith rear up from wooded slopes to form the western flank of the high Cairngorm Massif. Rising from delightful Glen Feshie, with ever expanding views you’re suddenly faced with the astonishing view of Glen Einich & its loch 2000ft directly below. Huge cliffs skirt around its edge to the massive bulk of Braeriach, creating one of the Cairngorms most impressive features.

Sun: Isolated from the main mass of Cairngorm peaks, Ben Rinnes dominates the views across to the Moray Firth coast. We climb along the spine of this bold peak to reach its airy summit and panoramic views of distant peaks. We descend pass rocky tors to complete this circuit in wild and open country. If time allows and the group wants we'll also try to visit a distillery like The Glenlivet or make a visit to the Whisky Castle to see the World's Largest Bottle of Whisky.
NB This will mean a late finish to the day and you may want to stay on at Fraoch Lodge for the night
