Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation
Geal Charn is a little visited Corbett in the sprawling moorlands to the northeast of the main mass of the Cairngorms, usually approached via a short round from Dorback Lodge. Perhaps the most interesting feature of the hill is the great ravine carved by the Water of Ailnack to the east, but it is difficult to view this as part of the approach.
