Featured photo of Braeriach

A remote mountain with an enormous plateau summit. The mountain is linked to Cairn Toul (4235 Feet) to the South. The Garbh Corrie cuts deep into the massif between these two summits, this is a winter climbing ground of superb proportions. It is best to stay in the Corrour refuge rather than try the ascent in a single day from Aviemore. An amazing pair of mountains.
