Carn na Saobhaidhe

 UK Area: Scotland
 Details: This is a bike & hike track log to the remote, and rather featureless, Corbet of Carn na Saobhaidhe in the Monadhliath range. Start point is at the end of the public road in Strathdearn, where there is a reasonably sized car park. From there it is a fairly easy cycle up the Glen, on good estate roads, until just past the Dalbeg cottage. Take the land rover track that heads west up the hill almost to the 700m contour [it would be possible to take a mountain bike the full length of this track if you don't mind a bit of pushing on the way up]. The last few Km to the featureless summit dome are a bit of a slog through bog and peat hags no matter what route you choose. There is a small cairn on the summit that could be tricky to find in very low visibility. [there is also a new bulldozed track that comes in from the NE which goes almost to the summit - if you find it the summit is not far away] Distance approx 29k [16 by bike] . Ascent 600m, Time just over 5 hrs.
