A' Mharconaich and Geal Chàrn, Drumochter
These are the northerly two summits of the four Munros on the west side of the Drumochter Pass. Geal Chàrn is a featureless lump with superb views towards Ben Alder, whilst A' Mharconaich is the shapliest of the range, with a steep prow prominent from the A9.
Straightforward hillwalking on these heathery mountains; the descent down the nose of A' Mharconaich is steeper and requires more care in winter. Final section is boggy and has a burn crossing.
None to start.
Car park just off A9 near Balsporran Cottages.
