Ladder Hills: Carn Mor from Chapeltown

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Carn Mor is the highest of the Ladder Hills; it could be ascended from the Lecht summit but this circular route from Chapeltown in Glenlivet makes a much more enjoyable outing.

Terrain

Hill path for the ascent, good walking on the broad ridge in parts but also several areas of eroded peat hags to cross. The return route is pathless in parts.

Public Transport

None to start.

Start

Car park, Chapeltown of Glenlivet. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
