Carn Dearg Solo

Munros: Carn Dearg (Monadhliath)

Date walked: 19/10/2019

Time taken: 8 hours

Distance: 25.24km

Part of the club weekend Strathspey Mountain Hostel only 2 showers, small kitchen

Solo walk

I had previously done the other 2 as a club walk back in 2013 11/08/2013. When Ian pulled me out of a peat bog.

So today I ended up going from a track by Cluny Castle which the man (Simon) staying at the hostel suggested.
Excellent track right up to the bothy (took me 1hr 10 mins to get to bothy)
Then it got shitty!
2 river crossings and constant uneven terrain and bog. There is supposed to be a track but its just quad tracks that disappear a lot.
It took me 5 hours to reach the summit it was horrendous! On the plus side it on took me just over 3 hours to get back down.
The bothy is awsome some pics below.
