Stunning views from the top
The stone 'cairn' at the peak of Cairn Gorm
Cracking male Snow Bunting - a family party was milling about right at the top
Makes the wintering birds we normally see look a bit dull
This pair of Ring Ouzel were collecting food for their brood
Lots of cocky Red Grouse on the mountain too, lower down than the Ptarmigan
Me, Josh and Alex 1245m up after conquering the mountain! When we started out there was a bit of cloud cover around the peak, half way up it was pretty nippy, but by the time we were at the peak (after some lunch at the Ptarmigan restaurant) it was sunny and warm enough for Alex to ditch his coat.
