Parked in the usual layby 88 off the A9 and set of up the steep bulldozed track towards the Quarry which is really just a collection of white stones. The path splits left and right, we took the left for Carn na Caim, follow the path until you see the fence posts turning right this is where you leave the track and follow the fence line it will take you straight to the summit which we reached in just under 2 hours. Headed back to the Y junction and met three ladies on the way up like us they were looking forward to a coffee at Bruar on the way home. We set off again and headed for A Bhuidheanach Beag which is a fair walk from Carn na Caim but is relatively easy and unremarkable. After some food and admiring the views through the cloud we headed back to the car making good time and then that well deserved coffee at Bruar. Unremarkable hills but really enjoyed the days walking.

Nice one dogjake, looks like a relatively easy pair to bag.

Yes it was a good walk with no difficult areas, I think most of the hills in this area pretty featureless and don't present much of a challenge. I'm heading back to Drumochter on Sunday to do Geal Charn and A' Mharconiach which are on the west side of the Drumochter pass starting from Balsporran cottages. Forecast is looking good so I'm itching to get out again.
