Dale Tyler walked up on July 11th, 2018 [from/via/route] Park in funicular car park & head out across the the hills to the right. Not sure what the route is called-very clearly marked path-obviously a main route [with] Sarah [weather] Complete contrast to Meall a' Bhuachaille the day before! Walked in the clouds all the way. No visibility & nice & wet from all the moisture in the air! - Peaceful summit-just me & Sarah sat in the clouds, although nearly missed the path coming back down! No ghostly old mountain men - thankfully! Snow bunting on top, grouse on the way up & down.
Ivor Aitchison climbed during 2015 [from/via/route] Ski centre car park [with] Yvonne [weather] Sunny warm - 25th wedding anniversary
Robin Murray bagged during June, 1975 [from/via/route] From Cairngorm carpark taking in Ben Macdui, Derry Cairngorm, Beinn Mheadhoin & Cairngorm [with] Elliot Murray, my Dad [weather] Glorious - Saw peregrine mobbing golden eagle over Loch Avon

Bay Wan summited on October 20th, 2013 [from/via/route] start from ski mountain resort via Cairngorm [with] Cocoa Pops [weather] Dry ish, light rain in parts, but misty on the summits - Better to do this walk in summer, more time to savour the views, if you can get some :/ Allow a good 4 hours to get to the summit of Macdui, the return leg via the western flank is fairly easy going compared with the uphill via Cairngorm
