Second of Four summits to reach Two Munro’s and their subsidiary tops, from the lay by on the A9 a Fifteen mile hike with 3500ft of ascent and taking Six and half hours.WAYNE ROWLETT18/05/2024
First munro day of the year, with Alma Aurea. A beautiful day forecast, so we climbed Carn na Caim South Top (914.6m), Carn na Caim (Munro, 940.8m), A' Bhuidheanach (881.1m) and A' Bhuidheanach Bheag (Munro, 936m). Sunny most of the day, clear summits and some snow to enhance the views, but not too much to spoil them. Beautiful 360 views of all the surrounding munro ranges. This was the first peak after the walk up from the layby. /Dmeltdiceburg31/03/2024

Parked in layby 87 for an early start on a superb November day: snow enough to walk dryshod over the summit plateau bogs, good visibility and frequent sun. Made the most of it with a long, rangy circuit: Carn na Caim South Top, CnC, A'Bhuideanach, A'B Bheag, Glas Meall Mor, Meall Uaine, Meall a'Chaorainn. Back down the track as darkness fell, somehow managing to stay upright on the ice patches, having left the spikes in the car to save weight. A'BB was my 141st Munro: half way there, but the difficult half awaits...Nick Down119/11/2017
