Third of Four summits to reach Two Munro’s and their subsidiary tops, from the lay by on the A9 a Fifteen mile hike with 3500ft of ascent and taking Six and half hours.WAYNE ROWLETT18/05/2024
First munro day of the year, with Alma Aurea. A beautiful day forecast, so we climbed Carn na Caim South Top (914.6m), Carn na Caim (Munro, 940.8m), A' Bhuidheanach (881.1m) and A' Bhuidheanach Bheag (Munro, 936m). Sunny most of the day, clear summits and some snow to enhance the views, but not too much to spoil them. Beautiful 360 views of all the surrounding munro ranges. A drop and pull back up, made harder by slightly more snow in this bit, but another beautiful summit when we arrived. /Dmeltdiceburg31/03/2024

4 of 6: From Carn na Caim. Cloud down as we arrived. We then went out and back to Meall Uaine and the cloud had lifted on our return. With Sam.ChrisR26/11/2023

After Cairn a Caim, walked south along the ridge. Amazingly the low cloud lifted and rain stopped. There’s actually a path all the way but you have to turn off the main track ( to stay on the mapped track) at nn658793 cairn, not obvious. This takes you down to a place where you can ford the stream easily before ascending to the summit trig. Returned same way to layby on Drummochter PassDenise 04/10/2023
Parked at A9 layby. Carn na Caim S Top, Carn na Caim, A'Bhuidheanach Bheag and A'Bhuidheanach on the way back. Very wet underfoot, showery and tops in cloud initially, clearing a little later. With Gillian and Denise.richard6904/10/2023
Easy ascent fr A9, good path now starts where track ends, and leads right to summit. A glimpse of a view but mostly overcast, though mild and dry. Moorland pleasant w lots of mountain hares.NorfolkPT2127/09/2023

Càrn na Caim and A' Bhuidheanach Bheag from Drumochter - Walkhighlands routehummusg20/08/2021
From lay-by 87, using the stony track up past the small quarry to the cairn 879m on A' Bhuidheanach. Then steep descent to a burn and up onto the plateau and trig point. Returned much the same way, avoiding steep re-ascent of A' Bhuidheanach by a path skirting its east flank. 13.1km, with 750m of ascent.Man of Kernow118/07/2021

Parking at Dalnasipdal on the A9, I head up to A' Bhuideanach Bheag (936m) then Meall Uaine, up to Glas Mheall Mor (925m). Returning to the car over Glas Mheall Beag (871m). A few snow flurries but great views in between, 04:50 all in.chillyman822/05/2021

Ascent from layby 87 on the A9.Dry conditions for the two Munros of A' Bhuidheanach Bheag & Cairn na Caim. Two rather boring grassy hills.knarf16/07/2020
With Sunny and Iain Carn na Caim & A' Bhuidheanach BheagHuwel11/07/2020
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

From layby 87 on A9, up track to A'Bhuidheanach, continuing to A'Bhuidheanach Bheag, then on to Glas Meall Mor, returning to A'Bhuidheanach Bheag, along ridge to Carn na Caim South Top and Carn na Caim, descending down same track to A9. With JS.kdbennett23/09/2018
Solo HFB11/08/2018
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
