The summit of the Munro Carn a’ Chlamain lies some seven miles north east of Blair Atholl. Depending on your route of ascent you can be looking at a five to seven mile trip just to get to the foot of the hill, and a round trip going on twenty miles. That’s a big day out at the best of times, but in November with it’s short days it can be a challenge to fit it in in daylight, however I have recently taken delivery of a new mountain bike and I had been itching to get out and put it to the test, so this seemed the ideal opportunity. When planning a walk I don’t like to rely heavily (if at all) on guide books, preferring to work out my route on the map, then adapting it when I see the ground.
