About Carn a'Mhaim

Carn a’Mhaim is a mountain in Cairngorms range, near Braemar in the county of Aberdeenshire, Scotland. It is a Munro, with an elevation of 1,037 m (3,402 ft) and a prominence of around 231 m (758 ft). It is a southern satellite of Ben Macdhui, to which is connected by a lengthy and very tight ridge, providing a rare opportunity in the Cairngorms for ridge walkers. It is not, though, an easy venture with steep climbs and boulder-hopping required to reach Ben Macdhui’s summit plateau.

Carn a'Mhaim itself can be ascended from the Linn of Dee car park by following the path past Derry Lodge, then climbing the steep southern slope from the foot of Glen Luibeg. The reward for reaching the summit are fine views of the surrounding Cairngorm Hills.
