Day 8 Cairngorm Circular Round 2

Day Eight –was dry initially but as we were putting the finishing touches to the saddles and bags, the heavens opened without warning.  No time to put waterproofs on before being completely soaked through!!  It did dwindle to a heavy drizzle for the next few hours though –so that was viewed as an improvement…

Luckily by the time we reached the higher peaks, the rain left us alone.  The views didn’t disappoint but would have been better in some sunshine.  Our overnight kit was already at tonight’s accommodation due to the plan change (thanks Dave), so Swift and Katy enjoyed a pack free day and Katy enjoyed a scratchy roll in the heather at the top of the hill.

After a steep and tricky descent down into Glen Prosen we followed the trail and road to the overnight hostel.  Just to make sure we weren’t getting used to that dry feeling, the rain came on again before we got there…
