We didn't actually go to the correct Ski Lift area, by mistake we parked in the area before the main Cairngorm site. There were no signs so we assumed we were in the right place.
Anyway, despite this we found a small muddy path that led up the other side of Cairngorm, the path disappeared and it was a bit treacherous at times, especially with low cloud and rain. There were little streams to cross, frozen rivers, orchids and colourful moss. When we reached the top the views were really something special and we didn't come across one person, it was very peaceful. A red grouse flew past us, annoyed at being disturbed!
We afterwards found the correct car park... it would be nice if there were info panels about wildlife and nature of the area, not just about the ski routes.
