In the rolling ground southwest of Braemar, Beinn Iutharn Mhor is a fairly complex mountain sitting at the head of Glen Ey. Beinn Iutharn Mhor's crests and shoulders stretch out above sloping corries and link to other minor summits, including the Munros of Carn Bhac and Carn an Righ.

After cycling down Glen Ey, a direct ascent of Beinn Iutharn Mhor can easily be made up its north-eastern shoulder. But with several other Munros surrounding Beinn Iutharn Mhor, perhaps it would be more worthwhile heading up from other directions to also hike over nearby Carn Bhac and Carn an Righ.
