From Linn of Dee Car Park (NO 06310 89799). Good track to Derry Lodge, briefly soggy underfoot before another good path as far as Luibeg Bridge. Boggy path downstream until re-joining the main path. Fairly steep ascent on a very good stepped path, some excellent maintenance work on the path was being carried out at the time. Air very clear so awesome views from the top... in particular Devil's Point to Cairn Toul and Ben Macdui to Derry Cairngorm.david23020101/10/2019
Climbed with Andrew Hall, from Linn of Dee car park. The plan had been to get Ben Macdui and Derry Cairngorm, but visibilty less than 30m with rain and wind, so just up to Carn a'Mhaim summit and back.chillyman828/09/2019

second ascent (26/06/2019) and reached the correct top after missing it on a west to east traverse from Devils Point Ridge to Ben Macdui ridge - accidentally bagged southern bump and only found out when I downloaded my GPS. Makes me wonder how non-GPS users can be so sure of their ascents ;)carole engel04/06/2018
