Beinn a'Ghlo

Guided hillwalking day in the southern Cairngorms

Beinn a'Ghlo is the collective name for a mountain range containing three fine Munro peaks in Perthsihre east of Glen Tilt. The southerly peak in the range, Carn Liath is a prominant peak and an indicator of weather when driving past on the A9. The highest peak, Carn nan Gabhar is at the northern end of the mountain and gives fine views in all directions from its summit.

We're on this range for a fine day of hill-walking over the 3 main Munros summits, and possibly more, that form this mighty Beinn a'Ghlo.
