CARN CROM (890M) , CAIRNGORMS

27th March 2017

This walk was a repeat of an ascent a week before which started off in blazing sunshine and led to deteriorating weather on the summit with 60 miles an hour winds defeating the object of the exercise ! Again ,the walk started in bright blue skies with no wind at all and continued past Derry Lodge over Creag Bad an t-Seabhaig via Coire Craobh an Oir , where a view up Glen Derry to Beinn Mheadhoin provides relief before tackling the last slopes to Carn Crom.


The view of the Cairngorm massif with Cairn Toul , Braeriach , Ben Macdui and Sputa Dearg cliffs , suddenly revealed on arriving on the summit ridge , was just as magnificent as expected . To the south , into the sun , Beinn a Ghlo sklined and to the north Derry Cairngorm was now free of snow .


 

 




 

An extended lunch ,whilst soaking in the environment , recharged the batteries for the 5 mile return to the National Trust for Scotland car park at the Linn of Dee. A successful return walk !
