Stunning Stunning Stunning

Looking south down the Lairig Ghru from near Lurcher's
Stunning is the only work that could be used for today! The aim was to have a journey to put into practice Hanna's new skills learnt over the previous days. We had been joined by Andy as our photographer today as Tom was on Braeriach for the day.

We left one car at the sugar bowl car park and then headed up to the ski centre. From here we headed out toward Coire an Lochain and up to spot height 1083m looking at navigation and just generally enjoying the awesome views and weather. From spot height 1083m we had great views south along the Lairig Ghru as can be seen in the photo above. After taking lots of photos we headed north to Creag an Leth-Choin (Lurcher's) then descending down hard neve slopes to the Chalamain Gap and back out to the Sugar Bowl car park.

It really was a stunning day and a great way for Hanna to finish her trip to Scotland. A great 3 days out in good conditions and fun company. Looking forward to seeing the feature in the Trail Magazine now!

I am off down to the Loch Tay area this afternoon for the weekend with King Edwards School from Sheffield, then back in the Cairngorms next week.
