You get a cracking view all the way out to Skye (on a clear day) from the car park. With a cafe, walks and views, well worth a trip. For the more adventurous, take the 1 hour walk up the mountain to Cairngorm Summit. As a qualfied mountain guide, Heather advises that you have the appropriate footwear, clothing, map, compass and health and experience to undertake this trip. Watch the weather and look at the Mountain Weather Information Service. it is 1300 metres afterall and like the Artic!
