Be _very_ careful with the Cairngorms at this time of year.

This is not like the Lake district (fine though it is); the climate on the Cairngorm plateau can best be described as sub-arctic.
My late father, a very experienced hillwalker introduced me to these mountains in my teens so I have great affection for them.
But they're deceptively undramatic from ground level so for the above reasons, not for the inexperienced.
Having said all that, I wish you well with your journeys and look forward to seeing your images.
