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