Carn Sgulain

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Carn Sgulain is one of the least interesting Munros, a featureless pudding in the Monadhliath and much inferior to neighbouring A' Chailleach. The intervening ground is riven by a steep little grassy gully so even the short walk across to Carn Sgulain is a little irritating!
