Carn a' Chuilinn, via Glen Doe

Carn a' Chuilinn is a wild Corbett on the western fringe of the Monadhliath. In recent years a major hydro electric scheme has been build underground here; the large tracks used for the construction scar the landscape but ease the approach.


Hard hydro track for approach, stalkers path. Hill section is very boggy, rough and pathless.

Public Transport

None to start.


Layby on S side of B862 at NH396088. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
