The western edges the vast Cairngorm plateaux are dominated by the undulating and lochan-pitted Moine Mhor moorland and at the southern end of this is Mullach Clach a'Bhlair. Being fairly featureless, it is only the height above sea-level which gives this hill Munro status.

The easiest approaches are from forested Glen Feshie, where a network of fine tracks and paths lead through Caledonian woods and up heather-clad slopes onto the Moine Mor plateau. In the upper reaches of Glen Feshie and at the western foot of Mullach Clach a'Bhlair is Ruigh Aiteachain bothy, handy for a back-packing stay in the area. Navigation on the undulating high ground surrounding Mullach Clach a'Bhlair away from track will be challenging in mist or white-out !
