Ben Macdui Climbing Notes

Please note this area can be very dangerous when the mist comes down (which can happen very frequently). The OS Map (or equivalent) should be a necessity and not a bonus. The plateau is largely featureless and it is easy to lose sight of the cairns. As this website will no doubt tell you the windchill at this height can be significant so ensure you have adequate clothing as well as the essential map and compass.
Despite that, there are stunning views to be enjoyed, just be aware that the weather can change quickly and be properly equipped. It is very easy to get lost in what is essentially an arctic environment even in midsummer.
