Carn a' Gheoidh from The Cairnwell

Carn a' Gheoidh

Grass covered Munro west of Glenshee Ski Centre

Carn a'Gheoidh rises above Spittal of Glenshee from where a fine track travels up its southern shoulder to within striking distance of its summit. However, most people will opt to include this Munro with The Cairnwell from Glenshee Ski Centre.

Tucked behind The Cairnwell and Carn Aosda and quite well hidden from roadside view, Carn a'Gheoidh is a grass-covered, flat-topped Munro.

There's a well-defined track heading up from Spittal of Glenshee up the hill's southern shoulder should you want a direct ascent or wish to include the Corbett Ben Gulabin. Carn a'Gheoidh's minor top, the conical summit of Carn Bhinnein, is worthy of a detour.

Head in from Glenshee Ski Centre and there's much less ascent and there's the bonus option to include other Munros on the hike.
