Cairngorms

Description

Mountain range in the eastern Highlands of Scotland. The highest of these mountains is named identical: Cairn Gorm, Blue Hill. Highest summit however is Ben Macdui, 1309 m. The mountain range is located between Aviemore and Braemar.

This area is good for walking, both beautiful and wild. The glens are pretty and sometimes spectacular. The mountains themselves can be climbed without technical problems, but require a good physical fitness.
