Loch Avon, Feith Buidhe
Feithe Buidhe waterfall
A windy day in The Cairngorms but some nice dry and sunny conditions. Temperatures below average for this time of year, no snow lying on high ground, not one single flake. It was lovely and quiet on the hills. Took a wander over to The Loch Avon basin. It was gusting around 50mph on the plateau but down beside the Feith Buidhe it was calm and very pleasant. There is some lovely and remote scrambling to be had on the slabs beside the Feithe Buidhe. It's a lovely spot and you're likely to see no one. The best of the granite slabs for scrambling are in the middle of the rocky area but if you go over toward the Feithe Buidhe (the stream flowing from the plateau to Loch Avon) it's quite atmospheric and beautiful. You get to see the we waterfall which plunges down from the plateau. The rocks here have more lichen and mosses growing on them so care needs to be taken. A fab place.
