Photo 032 - Cairngorm, Scotland

The Angel's Peak

This view was taken on returning North from Ben Macdhui (the second highest peak in Britain). It shows the new Munro 'The Angels Peak' with 'Cairn Toul' to its left. To its right is the source of the River Dee. Between them and me stands the 2000ft deep U-shaped valley of the Lairig Ghru. I took the photo in late May a few years ago.
