Meall a’ Bhuachaille & Ryvoan Pass Blog

June 10, 2017 @ 7:00 am - 6:00 pm

The route for the June walk was changed when the Friday forecast showed very high winds on the Cairngorm Plateau. So rather than Bynack More and Cairn Gorm the group of 24 walkers set off from Glenmore to Nethy Bridge via the Ryvoan Pass. One group included the Corbett Meall a’ Bhuachaille in their route to test the wind speed and found the forecast to be fairly accurate. Fortunately the heavy rain and low cloud which greeted us on arrival in Glenmore had passed before the top was reached and there were fine views from the summit cairn. Both routes joined at the Ryvoan Bothy and continued on very pleasant tracks through the Abernethy Forest. At this lower level there was little wind and by lunch time is was warm and sunny. A relaxing refreshment break in the sun outside the Nethybridge Hotel completed a very acceptable alternative walk. (Later news reports confirmed that conditions on the high tops had been poor with two rescues on the hills we had been scheduled to walk on the day).
