Càrn Fiaclach (Glen Affric) from Dog Falls car park with the Kids (17, 11, 8 )

Stats:
Total distance - 4.00 km
Total time - 03h10m
Altitude gain - 306.9 m

Càrn Fiaclach is mostly forested Marylin above Dog Falls in lower Glen Affric.
There is not a direct path to the top. Half of the way we walked on the Viewpoint Trail and the rest was a hard walk through heather, snow, trees and rubbish :)

We parked up on the Dog Falls car park. From the car park we took the white waymarked Viewpoint Trail.

Start of the walk:

We left the trail after about 1.2km. There is no path so we headed up trough the heather, trees, snow and other mess:
