Cairngorms with Sarah. Stayed at cairngorm lodge syha Friday night. Set off from ski centre car park 10am. Snow squalls and sunshine spells. Headed SW then S up ridge to W of coire an Lochan. Steady climb on a good path. Then across plateau towards Ben Macdui summit. The odd snow patch but generally clear. Summit 1.20pm 1309m. Drop ESE to flat area then turned SW to descend down tricky, slow going boulder field to bealach between allt Carn a mhaim and lairig ghru. Followed ridge up to Carn a mhaim 1037m 3pm. Dropped sw from col between the 2 summits to the main valley. Corrour bothy at 5. Nice to get out of the wind and get some hot food on! A complete mix of weather today from fine views and sunshine to winter blizzard conditions with clouds reducing visibility. Battling very blustery winds at times too. 7 hrs. 16km. 900m ascent.
