When is this event?
A free guided hike taking you along the Cairngorm’s impressive northern corries.
This 12km loop takes us around some of the finest terrain in the Northern Cairngorms. After gradually ascending passed Coire an-t Sneachda and Coire an Lochain we then hike up onto the Cairngorm Plateau itself, where in fine weather we are offered incredible views across the unique high ground and out north towards Aviemore and Strathspey. We then continue along the tops of the Northern Corries eventually descending back down towards the Cairngorm Ski Centre. This hike has a total of 800m ascent and includes a large variety of terrain, from well built pathways to small sections of boulderfields.
A good level of fitness is required, however previous hiking experience is not essential.
We will be meeting at 10:00. Please be sure to arrive promptly with appropriate kit for the hike, as indicated by the kit list. We will spend a short amount of time checking equipment and then aim to start the hike no later then 10:15.
