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
From Layby 87 and up track which is a bit of a chore. Pleasant walk once on the plateau on a cool sunny day. Sat at summit watching the fall streaks passing by to the northmindlessflogger04/05/2017

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

Gavin Appleton. Approached the summit from the more southernly Munro after completing that earier in the day. Much the same conditions and visibility. Descended from the summit eastwards heading virtually straight for the car in the lay by. Fairly easyian-e29/11/2008

From A9 up wide track to quartz quarry then the 2 Munros- A'Bhuiheanich Mhor and the Marilyn, lots of high moorland walking. By the time we got to Carn na Caim the cloud was just on the plateau but looking over the curve of the corrie below we watched a juvenile eagle circling ~200 m away- a great highlight of one of the least inspiring days on the Munros. Cut across muirburned slopes to join quarry track about halfway down. With brother, Pete.pwheeler24/05/2007
