A good mountain to start on

On our way north to spend a week in Moray with Jez, Jane, Miriam and Hannah, what should we do to break up the long drive? How about introducing the girls to Munro bagging?

Ascent: 285 metres
Duration: 1 hour 25 minutes

M281: Carn Aosda

The Cairnwell Munros are often derided as ugly, and boring. Not "good" Munros. Summits to get out of the way as quickly as possible when contemplating a round.

cairn-gorm.jpgI disagree. They may be amongst the lowest, they may be the easiest, but that's precisely what makes them an excellent choice for the first Munros to bag. We only had time for one today: Carn Aosda.

The view from the top was beautiful and expansive. I hope we'll be climbing more mountains together in the future. After all, there are another 283 to do.
