Kath & Louis on A' Bhuidheanach Bheag
2nd Munro, Carn na Caim, conditions the same!
A bit drier on the descent
The new power pylons and access road in Dromochter
Return clients Kath and Louis are back with me for a third time for more Munro fun. Kath is nearing her half way mark on the Munro list and today we headed for the two hills to the west of Drumochter, A' Bhuidheanach Bheag & Carn na Caim. The cloud was well down this morning and stayed there all day, with some claggy and moist conditions once in it. Some light rain by mid day so a nice soaking. These hills offer some challenging navigation, despite the many stalkers and estate 4wd tracks that get high onto the featureless plateau. So it was map and compass for me for much of the day. The ugly and devastating new power pylons and access tracks are now well under construction between the A9 and base of these hills. Recommendations from many bodies of burying power lines for much of the route fell on deaf ears, is this the future of an independent Scotland? Looking like a drier and brighter day tomorrow for us.
