Looking at Hugh's book I had but three munro's to bag to finish off the Drumochter chapter, and so off I went. usual ascent up the steep in places vehicle track, and off to the first top, A' Bhuidheanach Bheag, big grassy hilltop, I was lucky with the weather so about turn and back the same way then onto munro No 2, Carn na Caim, these two must be the most dullest that I have visited so far, nothing interesting up here, would make a better walk in the mist to test your navigation skills but today it was just follow the track from one to the other. but the real challenge lay ahead from this top, looking over to my goal for No 3, Meall Chuaich, I could see a nice ridge heading down so off I go, it was a long walk but no real issues and at last I was at the foot of the climb, this mountain looks great and was easily climbed from the area of Loch Chuaich. the drawback was the long walk back via the aqueduct road and into Dalwhinnie, but there's the task in hand, completed, sore feet and tired but a happy chappy, and a fantastic day out.
and the bonus of lots of very tame hand reared red grouse to trip over on the way
