Approaching Kintail from the south or east, Carn Ghluasaid is the mountain that dominates the view above Loch Cluanie. This Munro has a flat plateaued summit standing above rugged heather-clad slopes to the south and steep corries of Ceannacroc Forest to the north.

The most straightforward route up Carn Ghluasaid begins from Lundie on the northern shore of Loch Cluanie, where a stalkers path leads up the hill's south-western shoulder. Most hillwalkers will then continue onwards to Sgurr nan Conbhairean and other Munro summits.

Carn Ghluasaid could also be approached by bike from the estate tracks in Ceannacroc, though there are no paths to follow up the hillsides from this direction.
