Carn Ghluasaid is reached by a fine stalkers path from the north side of Loch Cluanie. The other side of the mountain collapses in broken crags down to Coire Sgreumh. The mountain is really quite a minor subsidiary summit of Sgurr nan Conbhairean - wth less than 60m of ascent if coming up from the direction of its parent peak.
Altitude: 957 metres

Other routes and challenges
The Sgurr nan Conbhairean group is linked to the A' Chralaig and Mullach Fraoch-choire ridge by the Bealach Choire a' Chaitt.
To ascend all five Munros in the group, the best option is a starting point in the remote upper reaches of Glen Affric to the north, though the approach to the foot of the ridges is very long and would usually require an overnight stay. The Corbett Carn a' Choire Ghairbh could also be included.
