Hilltrek customers the Aller brothers had a recent adventure in the Cairngorms.
Here is their story….
4 day trip to the Cairngorms National Park @ Scotland with my brother.
Pretty rough first night as our tent got ripped to shreds by hurricane force winds on the slopes of Ben Macdui.
Called mountain rescue for advice who told us to come down instead of sitting out the storm and waiting for dawn.
Literally had to crawl down with heavy packs in order not to get blown over off the mountain.
Met up with rescue team down in the valley and were driven back to our car.
Apart from some bruises and damaged gear we’re fine. there was nothing left of the Hilleberg Nallo 3GT.
Our Braemar Ventile Smocks held up to this beating though
What an experience! Not to be repeated
