It's been a pretty wet time in The Cairngorms, yesterday in poured down as my group of 10 had a short warm up walk along the Speyside Way to Avimore. We set out today in drizzly light rain at Coire Cas carpark. The cloud was down to 500m as we headed for Lurches and onto Cairn Lochan. The afternoon improved, becoming drier and eventually the cloud lifted, just as we were on our way off down the hill. The group did well considering no previous hillwalking, well done to them for persevering the summer weather.
