Carn na Caim - DESCRIPTION

Carn na Caim sits on a large summit plateau to the east of the Pass of Drumochter. It is normally climbed in conjunction with A Bhuidhneach Bheag which sits at the opposite end of the plateau. It is a large rounded hill with little in the way of distinguishing features. The summit itself only just rises above the level of the plateau making it hard to find the true summit in misty conditions. The best aspects to the hill are the small corries which cut into the north slopes and sharp gullies that run down the western edge of the plateau. Any of these can make a possible ascent / descent route as the slopes are manageable.

As mentioned Carn na Caim is normally climbed with A Bhuidhneach Bheag which lies south of the summit of Carn na Caim along the wide flat plateau which again can be difficult to navigate in misty conditions.

There is parking available just south of Dalwhinne where Carn na Caim can be tackled from any direction on its NW face.

The rounded natures of these hills lend themselves perfectly to ski mountaineering to add a bit of extra excitement to your day.
