Carn na Drochaide, from Linn of Quoich

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Carn na Drochaid is a rather sprawling hill without any distinctive features; its superb position, however, on the edge of the High Cairngorms makes it a fantastic viewpoint.


Faint track for the first part of the ascent, then pathless moorland becoming rocky near the summit.
