Carn na Caim and A'Bhuidheanach Bheag, Drumochter

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

The east side of Drumochter pass is bounded by a steeply rising moor, riven by gullies. Suprisingly given its unimpressive appearance, there are two Munros on the plateau above. The hills themselves lack interest but this walk gives a real feeling of space. The tops are the haunt of dotterel and ptarmigan.

Terrain

Vehicle track up to the plateau, then faint boggy paths; tricky navigation in bad weather.

Public Transport

None to start.
