Càrn Dearg is one of four Corbetts accessible from Glen Roy, no less than three of which are called Càrn Dearg. This is the highest of the hills around the glen; the upper slopes are featureless moorland, the lower slopes steep and scarred by the famous 'parallel roads'.


Pathless hillwalk over grass and heather; some steeper ground. The featureless terrain can require careful navigation.
