Braeriach from Lurchers
Saturday and Sunday we enjoyed hot, cloudless conditions on the Cairngorms. Maybe too hot! But we shouldn't complain as Tuesday all is changing to cooler and wetter conditions. Nice to be out on the tops again. Saturday it seemed we had the whole of the Cairngorms to ourselves. Not a soul seen all day apart from a few bikers on the ski road.
Time for a morning dip
On Saturday we headed up the road to the Sugar Bowl and up the Northern ridge of Lurchers Crag. Before heading to the summit there was time for a cool swim.

Coure an Lochain
Caperts of beautiful  Trailing Azalea on the long ridge to the top. We even managed a sunbathe on the summit of this 'deleted' Munro.

Loch na Binne swim
Another hot day on Sunday but strong winds on the tops so nice and cool. Another morning dip in one of the lochs up the hill. We then headed up the long, broad Northern ridges of Cairn Gorm. Ww saw no one again all day.
