A – Cairntoul & Angel’s Peak
Distance 32 kms. Ascent 1550 metres OS Map 43
A Walk - The walk will start at the NTS car par (membership card for free parking) at Linn of Dee and follow the usual land rover track to Derry Lodge and onward by a well established path, crossing the Luibeg Burn by fording or by bridge (an extra 1km) onward at low level to the Lairig Ghru and over the bridge to Corrour Bothie (approx 600m altitude). From the bothie, the ascent begins up the steep path of Coire Odhar to the bealach at about 900m just north and west of Devils Point. Our route turns right, then gradually ascends a further 300m to the Cairngorm plateau at the unnamed top of 1213m above craggy Coire an t-Saighdeir. Skirting the corries, we descend and re-ascend approx 150m and deviate briefly to conquer Cairn Toul, then follow the path, with a further 100m ascent/descent, round to Angel’s Peak. The return route is much the same as outward though missing out the minor deviation to Cairn Toul. If anyone wishes to use a bike, please contact James to discuss arrangements.
Total Time: Approx. 12 hours.
Note: This walk is long and requires a good level of fitness
Meet at Culter Village Hall at 6:30 am, return around 9.45pm. Transport by car (drivers required) – contribution to drivers please.
