hard work wading through snow but great views all round.gettingonabit20/02/2018
Along the plateau, just above the cloud base. Deep snow, so no sign of the track, followed the fence posts, most of them partially buried, the rest totally buried in snow. As the wind was behind us we continued on to the NNW spur, then NW down steep snowy (briefly icy) slopes, then west through tiring soft deep snow back to the A9 1 km north of the Dalwhinnie turn.Owen B16/02/2018
Parked in layby 87 for an early start on a superb November day: snow enough to walk dryshod over the summit plateau bogs, good visibility and frequent sun. Made the most of it with a long, rangy circuit: Carn na Caim South Top, CnC, A'Bhuideanach, A'B Bheag, Glas Meall Mor, Meall Uaine, Meall a'Chaorainn. Back down the track as darkness fell, somehow managing to stay upright on the ice patches, having left the spikes in the car to save weight. A'BB was my 141st Munro: half way there, but the difficult half awaits...Nick Down119/11/2017

Parked in Lay-by 87. Horrible land rover track up and down. After bagging A'Bhuidheanach Bheag it's a fairly easy walk to Carn na Caim. Paths are obvious. Forgot to take photo of cairn - doh!Jhimmy25/04/2011
