Colin's Munros


Carn Aosda, The Cairnwell, Carn a' Gheoidh, Carn nan Righ & Glas Tulaichean
map 43; 9th August 2003

Route: Ascent 1600m = 5250'; Distance 18.8 miles; Time: 8hr 15mins.

Route: This starts at Glen Shee Ski Centre but finishes at Spittal of Glenshee. It's a slightly unnatural route because of the traverse from Carn Bhinnein to Loch nan Eun but otherwise the terrain is very pleasant and the addition of Carn nan Righ and Glas Tulaichean to The Cairnwell group extends a short day to a good outing.
If circular walks are required, Carn nan Righ and Glas Tulaichean can easily be climbed together from Spittal of Glenshee, and the other three Munros from the Ski Centre as here. Alternatively, one or both of Carn nan Righ and Glas Tulaichean can be climbed with Beinn Iutharn Mhor from Inverey to the north, as here.
