Càrn a'Mhaim from the Linn of Dee

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Càrn a'Mhaim is a southern satellite of Ben Macdui, to which it is linked by long and very narrow ridge, an unusual feature for the Cairngorms. Càrn a'Mhaim is well seen from Derry Lodge and provides a worthwhile ascent in its own right, though it is even better if continuing to its mighty parent.


Good tracks and paths for the approach, boggy section just after Derry Lodge. The ascent is on a good hill path.
