Schiehallion Winter Camp

Schiehallion Winter Camp

By Connie Ceuppens>

Uath Lochans, The Cairngorms

I started the day eating porridge at a viewpoint overlooking the Uath Lochans, a series of glassy pools south of Aviemore, surrounded by pine forest. Elated from the sunrise, I pondered what to do with the rest of the day.

I had toyed with the idea of heading back to Glasgow to begin wading through a mountain of emails, but after seeing the forecast for a clear night ahead I flushed that idea straight down the toilet. I was heading south, so I aimed for Schiehallion, a lonely fin-shaped mountain with a steady well graded track almost all of the way to the summit. It’s in central Scotland and can have stunning views (if you get the weather) of other prominent mountains in the distance beyond.
