These two rounded Corbetts on the fringes of the Cairngorms are conveniently climbed together. Culardoch offers extensive views into Aberdeenshire whereas Carn Liath is a belvedere for admiring the granite tors of nearby giants Ben Avon and Beinn a'Bhuird.


Good track for approach. The two hills have rounded, heather-covered slopes with some pathless sections, with boggy ground in places on Carn Liath.
