SMMC Muir of Inverey meet.clashcityrocker20/01/1999
Staying at Muir Cottage (Cairngorm Club hut). With five friends. From Muir Cottage we went along the road and then on a track through forest near Craig a Chait. Went over the summit of Carn na Moine to reach Carn Liath, Geal Charn, Carn Bhac SW Top, Carn a Bhutha, Carn Bhac SW Top again and Carn Bhac. Skirted Carn Creagach to go down the ridge ending near Auchelie and back to Muir Cottage. A fine day with very little snow on the ground. Mist on the highest top only.pwbellarby24/01/1987
