An ambitious start to combine this with its next door neighbour. Setting off from lay by 88 buffeted by speeding traffic we ascended the Land Rover track which rapidly became snow covered and a steady breeze helped us up the hill whilst cooling us s as well. Reaching the plateau the packed snow and drifting cloudy made views patchy.. The long trudge across the snowy undulations using sight and compass in this featureless landscape a surreal experience. A line of iron fence posts led us directly to the trig point. Icy winds and drifting spindrift were a major feature. All clothing was donned to keep us at operating temperature. The return walk was exhausting the day was advancing and so we decided to leave the plateau with one summit and head for the car and the surprising Scottish victory over the French at rugby.david.walker4008/03/2020

Solo from Loch an DunUisdean2511/08/2018
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
After Carn na Cairn. Went to all three lumps on the level ridge just in case trig point is judged not to be the highest point at some future date - I don't want to return. Form layby 87. Clear sunny day.mindlessflogger04/05/2017
