Shorter walk than I expected, and certainly easier doing it after a good dry spell than if the ground was wet. Would be a good frozen option too, though wouldn't get the wild raspberries and blaeberries to eat then. I ended up doing it anti clockwise as I saw an ATV track heading up quite steeply from the mine, so decided to keep the more gently sloping path for the descent.
As Carn Mor was quite a short walk for a corbett, I stopped on the way back just to nip up another (very) short walk nearby. Parked in the signed car park at Glenmullie, then just stayed in trainers to take the waymarked route up to the viewpoint and then went up to the mast before heading back the same way to the car more or less (took a different route back inadvertently but the forestry tracks met up anyway). [6.9km, 225m ascent, took about an hour and a half]

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
