The Cairngorms

© Gavin Shaw 2003

15 February 2003 nearing 5pm. At 818m, Carn Liath, south east of the White Bridge on the river Dee, is a long way from being the highest peak in the Cairngorm region, but I think it is the finest viewpoint for the entire Cairngorm massif. This picture is a combination of two 617 transparencies, providing a field of view of about 150 degrees. The main tops which can be seen in this picture are, from the left, Beinn Bhrotain, Angel's Peak, The Devil's Point, Cairn Toul, Braeriach, Carn a' Mhaim, Ben Macdui, Derry Cairngorm, Bheinn Mheadoin, A' Choinneach, Bynack Mor, Beinn a' Chaorainn, Beinn Bhreac, Beinn a' Bhuird, Ben Avon, Brown Cow Hill, Culardoch and on the extreme right, Morven.
