Three Munros in one trip!  This walk starts from Baddoch, in Glen Clunie, and ascends the northern ridge towards Carn Aosda (917).  From here it follows the track around the western rim of the ski centre and climbs The Cairnwell (933m) more properly known as An Carn Bhalg, another Munro but with the dubious distinction of being the highest radio transmitter site in Britain.  The route doubles back on itself towards Loch Vrotachan but continues south west taking in the 920m top of Carn nan Sac before reaching Carn a Gheoidh (975m).  Once reaching this high point we travel south and descend into Gleann Taitneach before reaching our final destination at the Dalmunzie Hotel.
