Cairngorm 4000ers

Guided hillwalking and rock-scrambling days in the northern Cairngorms

In the heart of the Cairngorms are vast plateaux above huge cliffs and dark corries. These plateaux are either side of the famed Lairig Ghru pass and contain five of the UK's highest mountains including Ben Macdui, Braeriach, Cairn Toul and Cairngorm.

There are many routes leading to these Munro summits and, just for fun, we'll be taking two easy scrambling routes, Fiacaill Ridge up to Cairn Lochan and Cairn Toul's North Ridge.

At a glance

  • Two days of hiking up high mountains in the Cairngorms.
