Topic - Ethical issues with wild camping in Cairngorms in winter?

jhw - on 06 Dec 2012
I've reviewed the guidelines published online for camping in the Northern Cairngorms in Winter and wondered, beyond that, whether there are additional considerations I should take into account.

I ask because I see there's not a lot of online guidance on camping in this area in Winter and so I wonder if this just isn't the done thing, for ethical reasons rather than that it's a bit uncomfortable.

What I'm really wondering is just why more people don't do this, given the numbers who do it at the Col du Midi for example. Or is there something specific like that it's impossible to get pegs in, for example?

Excuse my ignorance if there's something glaring I've overlooked! I wanted to ask before just showing up with a tent.
