Braemar A and B walkers
Since it is only 2 weeks away, and snow is still in the forecasts up north, there is bound to be snow up high in the Cairngorms even in May, so please bring spikes with you if you intend doing the A Munro or B Corbett hill walks. There will be Easier B walks on offer too. Depending on conditions, it is the leader’s decision on whether to allow you to go on the walk if you do not have proper spikes. If you are interested, all walks are covered by OS Landranger map number 43.
