Glas Maol Munros circuit, Cairnwell Pass
Glas Maol is the highest of the four Munros on the east side of the Cairnwell Pass. With a high-level start and little descent between the summits, which are arranged on a plateau, this is a straightforward round in good conditions for four Munros.
Some boggy ground on the approach, and flattish, fairly featureless stony terrain once the plateau.
None to start.
Layby on A93 north of summit.
