Carn na Drochaide, from Linn of Quoich
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. The Linn of Quoich bridge is currently down at the start of the route.
Faint track for the first part of the ascent, then pathless moorland becoming rocky near the summit.
No public transport.
Linn of Quoich car park.
