Visited near the end of winter. Luckily it had snowed for a couple of days. Visited the Ski resort and the Cairngorm Mountain. Didn't ski but enjoyed a pizza and coffee at the Costa Coffee. The access roads were very good. Comfortable drive.

A good drive into the forest with the knowledgeable Alph as our ranger who was filled with humorous stories. It was a good two and half hours out and about.
