Atholl bike-hiking and Munro-bagging weekend

The Atholl Munro summits of Beinn Dearg and Carn a'Chlamain along with the Corbett peak of Beinn Mheadhonach, lie some distance from the nearest road. Fortunately there are rough tracks that reach into the area, perfect for a spot of trail-biking. The hills themselves, though not particularly high, are expansive with fine views from their summits to the Cairngorms to the north, Drumochter to the west and the Perthshire hills to the south.
