One possible alternative route follows the path coming up from Loch Etchachan. This loch may be reached by from Loch Avon to the north or by coming up from Glen Derry to the South. Other routes include coming over Derry Cairngorm, or via the Lairig Ghru pass, which lies to the west of Ben Macdui. Before the production of accurate maps of Scotland in the nineteenth century it was not known for certain that Ben Nevis was the highest point in Britain, and it was often thought that Ben Macdui might be the higher. After Ben Nevis was confirmed as the higher there were plans by some locals to build a cairn on the summit of Ben Macdui sufficient to bring its height above that of the Lochaber peak, though these plans did not come to fruition. All routes onto Ben Macdui are long days by Scottish standards. When coming from the south it is common to make use of a bicycle to cover the 4 km (2½ mi) separating the road end at Linn of Dee from Derry Lodge at the southern end of the massif. It is claimed that Ben Macdui is the home of Am Fear Liath Mòr (the "big grey man of Ben Macdui"). Opinion is divided as to the substance behind this reported phenomenon, which it is claimed resembles either a Brocken spectre or a yeti.]]> Summit 0 Waypoint 0 Waypoint 0 Summit 0 Waypoint 0 Bridge 0 Waypoint 0 Dot 0 Dot 0 Parking Area 0 Bridge 0 Waypoint 0 Forest 0 Waypoint 0 Waypoint 0 Waypoint 0 Summit 0 Waypoint 0 Waypoint 0 Cairn Gorm.
