An Sgarsoch and Càrn an Fhidhleir

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

These two rounded, featureless hills are given distinction by their remoteness. In the heart of the wild country between the main Cairngorms and the Atholl ranges, few Munros can match these peaks for the feeling of solitude or open space. The day could be shortened by the use of a mountain bike on the approach.


Excellent tracks and path on approach. The hills themselves are rounded but with pathless heather and peat-bog at times. Potentially dangerous river crossings.

Public Transport

Very limited summer (Jun-Sep) bus from Braemar.


Linn of Dee car park. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
