Geal Chàrn Mòr is the southeasternmost summit of the vast Monadh Liath plateau. It gives a fairly straightforward hillwalk and offers superb views of the Cairngorms across Strathspey.


Good track as far as the pass, then rougher path over heather to summit. Return route follows rougher paths, boggy in places.
