Carn an Fhidhleir (Carn Ealar)
Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation
Carn an Fhidhleir is a domed and unspectacular Munro. However it is in the heart of a vast roadless area, requiring an epic approach from either Glen Feshie, Glen Tilt or, more usually, the Linn of Dee - this latter approach is made easier with a mountain bike.
Altitude: 994 metres

Other routes and challenges
One alternative approach is up Glen Feshie. After the very long but beautiful walk up the glen, cross the Eidart footbridge before tackling the boggy lower slopes of Carn Ealar and continuing to An Sgarsoch.
The other possibility is a start up Glen Tilt from Blair Atholl. Though even longer, there is the possibility of making use of the Tarf bothy, though crossing the river Tarf afterwards can be impossible in spate.
