As we headed up further the terrain eased off considerably, and the views opened up. Above is the impressively proportioned Ben Macdui.
Below is the nice view of Derry Cairngorm that I mentioned earlier. We could have run over and got up to the top no problem at all, but...well...we'd both done it before...and we were a wee bit short of time...and Jorja was looking a trifle tired (aye right) so we decided that a couple more photies and then a swift return to base was in order. It was a cracking walk anyway. Most enjoyable, and really lucky with the weather to actually get those views in the winter.
I like this last picture - Gordy and the wee black dug looking over towards Cairn Toul.
Scotland - don't you just love it?
