Ben Macdui and Derry Cairngorm

It was a lovely day for hillwalking - just warm enough with a light breeze and views across the whole of the Cairngorms.

Maggie and I went out to collect a couple of the Cairngorms Munros so we started off from the ski area car park and walked up the ridge alongside Coire an Lochain and on to Ben MacDui enjoying the views over to Braeriach and Cairn Toul. From Ben MacDui, we dropped towards Loch Etchachan but cut across to Derry Cairngorm to "bag" that summit too.

It was a lovely walk back around the lochain and down to Loch Avon then a bit of a slog back up to Coire Domhain but soon we were back up on the plateau for a pleasant walk back over the plateau.
