The route from the Cairngorm Ski Car Park crosses below the northern corries of Cairngorm before climbing the steep ridge towards Cairn Lochain. A long gradual climb leads to Ben Macdui, Scotland's second highest mountain at 1,309m. The route provides spectacular views across the Lairig Ghru to Braeriach and Cairn Toul. From Ben Macdui the route cuts across the plateau to Cairn Gorm (1,245m) before descending the Fiacaill a' Choire Chais to the finish. On the Cairngorms expect winter even in summer, so be prepared for all weathers!
