Cairn Toul

Arguably the most beautiful of the Cairngorms, Cairn Toul's scything lines and deep-kicked corries hide many scrambles, climbs, wild camps and viewpoints. Remote and made almost an island by the lassoing headwaters of the Dee, the mountain's most transcendent feature is the pyramidal of Sgor an Lochain Uaine ­ otherwise known as Angel's Peak.

Recommended route: via the south-western ridge of Creag an Loch, a little
scramble that gets you up in fine style. Start from Whitewell (NN916086).
