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

From A9 N of Drumochter Lodge across A'Bhuidheanach Bheag in cloud and thunder and lightning - after storm finished navigated by contours in mist to this Top went N to try to attempt Carn na Caim but got very confused in mist as tracks on ground are far more extensive than on the map so followed track W down past Old quarry to A9celticrambler26/05/2002
I parked up on the A9 a little north of Drumochter Lodge. Once through the deer fence I was on the open hillside up a spur south-west of Allt Coire Chuirn and a steady climb up to a somewhat featureless plateau. The remains of a fence provided a handrail. The first Munro of the day was A'Bhuidheanach Bheag marked with a trig point. From the summit I headed eastsoutheast to reach the Munro Top at Glas Mheall Mòr. I then retraced my steps to A'Bhuidheanach Bheag before heading north, skirting the minor top at A'Bhuidheanach and continuing northwards over two minor tops marked as 902 and 914 metres and eventually to my second Munro (Càrn na Caim). I returned towards the 902 point before heading down a track from a quarry. Rather than following the track all the way down to the road, I cut across the hillside to my starting point.langskill12/08/2001

Just the 1 Munro & this 1 top today as I could not run due to incredibly sore knees from yesterday's big day - unlike Chris M & Martin who after A Bhuidheanach Bheag ran N without me to add 2nd Munro of Carn na Caime (which I came back for in 1994 with Lesley)Chris Pearson31/05/1992
