Carn an Righ, Glas Tulaichean, Carn Bhac, Beinn Iutharn Mhor & An Socach
Map 43, 19th June 2008

Route: Cycling: 10.6 miles, 1.75 hrs; Walking: 16.5 miles, 8+ hrs; 2170m = 7120' ascent.

Access: Bike from Inverey to Altanour Lodge.
Route: This is an enlarged version of the walk here, which does not include Carn an Righ or Glas Tulaichean. It requires a good level of fitness and a long summer day because of the distance and the amount of ascent. Either or both of Carn an Righ and Glas Tulaichean are easily omitted if short of time or energy, and they can be done easily from Spittal of Glenshee if necessary.
Terrain: A mixture of heather, rocks & peat hacks; some paths. Not hard going, but not easy either – medium going throughout. Mainly rocks on uppermost slopes and ridges of Beinn Iutharn Beag & An Socach.
Connectivity: Orange on all tops.
Weather: 11°C at car, stiff breeze, overcast, occasional sharp showers.
