Ben Macdui and Cairn Gorm

the-approach-cairn-lochan2

An excellent day out taken from the Walk Highlands website. From the Ski Centre, up the side of Cairn Lochan onto Ben MacDui and finish via Cairn Gorm. Fantastic and in superb conditions!! Met loads of folk….a resident Glaswegian Italian on skis, a bloke from Clydebank and a guy who was Karen Darke’s telephone engineer!! Surreal moment when the RAF helicopter buzzed me, the saw the RAF MRT in the bar afterwards!!

Great to have a cloud-free day but not surprisingly, the MWIS wind forecast was a tad accurate!! Jeez…..balaclavas on at 800m!!

Photo taken by Mr Ermanno Rambelli, as much as I love Paramo gear, the chest pocket doesn’t do your profile well!! Honest…there’s a map,water bottle and food in there!! Oh and a sleeping mat!!

Velez smock and stretch pants by Paramo. Chest pouch by OMM, Zamberlan Viox boots oh and Paramo stretch hat in hand….fab bit of kit. Not to forget, hair by Carol of ‘Mals Dumbarton’!!
