Thanks to Frank Verwijs for adding this peak.
Ben Macdui is the second highest hill in Scotland after Ben Nevis. There are also 3 other peaks above 4000ft. The summits are the highest points of the plateau. There are huge cliffs, and many snowfields last through the summer. This area is infamous for its bad weather. Although the walk is easy, you have to be aware of that. Sadly this mountain group called the Cairngorms is now a popular skiing area in winter.
