In the Cairngorms National Park looking towards Cairn Gorm itself. Ben Macdui, Britain;s secnd highest mountain, is just visible before the trees on the right; Steve and I climbed that earlier in the week.
Ben Macdui is in the centre of the arctic-like Cairngorms plateau – a much wilder place than Ben Nevis. Climbed equally frequently from both Deeside and Speyside, the summit is said to be haunted by the wraith-like Old Grey Man. The only old grey man that Steve saw was me.
