Carn a'Chlamain

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Carn a' Chamain is the relatively minor stony summit rising above a spacious and very remote plateau. The approach is up scenic Glen Tilt, one of the Highlands' most beautiful glens and it is this that makes the walk a minor classic.


Good approach track and then hill path. This is a straightforward hill-walk in good weather but do not underestimate the length.

Public Transport

None to Old Bridge of Tilt; Blair Atholl buses and trains only a kilometre away. Traveline Scotland.
