Grahams starting with C
Cairnsmore of Fleet
|Cairnsmore of Fleet is the most southerly of the Grahams and lies to the E of Newton Stewart.|
The hill forms a long ridge running roughly NW to SE with the E side falling away steeply in comparison to more gentler slopes on the W side.
The usual ascent is from a walker's car park in Cairnsmore Estate from where a hill path leads right to the summit.
|Suilven's Caisteal Liath is an iconic peak rising prominently on all sides from the surrounding land which is perforated with many lochans.|
The spectacular whale-back ridge of Suilven runs NW to SE with tops at either end separated by the Bealach Mor. The summit (Caisteal Liath) lies at the NW end of the ridge.
The usual point of access is from the NW near Canisp Lodge to the E of Lochinver.
|Capel Fell lies to the E of Moffat and is one of four Grahams in the Ettrick Hills.|
Capel Fell along with Croft Head and Ettrick Pen lie within a few km of each other and the ascent of all three is perfectly feasible in a single outing.
The closest access is from the NE at the end of the public road alongside the Ettrick Water. Much of this road is also part of the Southern Upland Way.
Carn a' Chaochain
|Carn a' Chaochain lies midway between Glen Affric to the N and Glen Moriston to the S.|
It can be climbed by long approaches from either Glen Moriston, or from the car park at Plodda Falls to the NW, with the latter having the possibility of being able to drive several km further as far as Cougie.
There are 3 tops on the summit. The highest lies approximately 500m SSW of the central top which hosts the trig point and is higher by 2m.
Carn a' Choin Deirg
|Carn a' Choin Deirg is a remote hill in the Freevater Forest, situated some distance NE of the Munro Seana Braigh.|
It is the highest point of a curving ridge which runs from Carn Alladale (636m) in the S to Carn a' Ghorm Loch (623m) in the N.
The shortest approach is from Glencalvie Lodge at the end of the minor road from Ardgay on the A836, although access may be curtailed at certain times of the year.
Carn a' Ghille Chearr
|Carn a' Ghille Chearr lies at the NE end of the Hills of Cromdale, a ridge running SW to NE to the W of Grantown-On-Spey.|
The ridge is bounded by Strathspey to the NW and Strath Avon to the SE.
The Graham Creagan a' Chaise lies at the SW end of the ridge and the two could possibly be climbed together giving a long ridge walk.
Access is possible from either Strathspey to the NW or Strath Avon to the SE.
Carn an Tionail
|Carn an Tionail has a long S ridge which has steep craggy slopes on the W side towards Loch Ulbhach Coire.|
It's summit lies just under 2km across a high bealach from the Graham Beinn Direach and the two could readily be climbed together. It also lies directly to the E of the Corbett Meallan Liath Coire Mhic Dhughaill which could also be included in a longer outing.
The most convenient approach starts from West Merkland at the NW end of Loch Merkland from where a track leads NE.
|Carn Breac rises to the W side of Glen Carron.|
The main feature is its NE to SW summit ridge, although another ridge to the E emanates from this main ridge and drops down to Glen Carron at the W end of Loch Sgamhain.
The Graham Beinn na Feusaige lies a few km further E and both could readily be climbed together from near the W end of Loch Sgamhain.
|Carn Glas-choire is the highest point of high moorland to the E of the A9 at Tomatin.|
Nearest access is from the B9007 road at NH929201 from where a track can be followed NW.
|Carn Gorm lies to the N of Cannich between Glen Cannich and Glen Strathfarrar. It is a high point in otherwise featureless ground.|
It lies approximately 5km ESE of the Corbett Sgorr na Diollaid with which it could be combined to make two otherwise short trips into one longer expedition.
Best approach is from Glen Cannich to the SW.
