4. Carn Na Caim
Another easily ascended hill from the A9 with a snow sure ascent via a deeply indented land rover track which fills with snow in all but the leanest winters.
Park in the layby ½ km south of the Dalwhinnie turn off and cross the road to the break in the forest where the landrover track starts (gr: NN6399 8215). From there the ascent line follows the track to the summit plateau terminating at an old quarry. Heading in a NE direction an old fence points the way to the summit which lies 3km across the plateau.
The descent back down the landrover track is non-technical at a shallow angle & can be highly entertaining. Alternatively pick one of the lines down one of the 5 NW facing gullies before traversing round to pick up the track back to the car. 4 hours
The last two tours can be combined to give a relatively straightforward day of approx. 5 hours.
