Night Walk: Ben Macdui Autumn Summit

Join us for an autumnal night walk summiting the second highest mountain in the UK, Ben Macdui.

Setting off at around 4pm on the Saturday night from the Cairngorm Ski Centre Carpark, we will head onto the Cairngorm Plateau. As we do so we will witness the last light of the day. As we ascend into darkness, we will use torches and night navigation skills to summit the highest mountain in the Cairngorms, Ben Macdui.

At this time of year in the Cairngorms, the nights are getting longer and the climate will be cooler in anticipation of winter. Colder air and dark nights mean that if we are blessed with clear skies, you will have the opportunity to do some of the best stargazing the UK has to offer.
