Cairn Gorm & Ben Macdui

Distance: 18.4km

Ascent: 932m

Time: 3.5 - 5.0 hours

Difficulty: Difficult


A challenging but rewarding route across the Cairngorm plateau to the highest point in the Cairngorms. In addition to some steep climbs the ground is rough and fairly technical, but the views are stunning.

There are lots of options to extend the route to include some (or all) of the ski road, or include a round-trip to Loch Etchachan.
