    Ben Gulabin Walk

    The Ben Gulabin Walk is a challenging adventure in Cairngorms National Park that will take you on a fairly direct route up the mountain for views over the valley. While out walking the trail, you will climb up steep, rocky, and often eroded paths to reach the summit, where spectacular views of the surrounding landscape await. Walkers should take note that this route is only suitable for the summer months, as the peak is covered with snow and ice during the winter and requires experience using and ice axe and crampons.
