The Cairnwell Munros from Glenshee

Saturday 6th April

Walk Description

This is probably the easiest and shortest day that allows the walker to bag three munros. 

Starting at the Glenshee Ski Centre the walk starts by following a track up to Cairn Aosda (this is easily done within an hour of the car park. From here we travel to the more remote surroundings of Carn a’Gheoidh which will afford views across to Glas Tulaichean and north to An Socach.

Finally we retrace our steps, keeping the fine corrie to our rights and climbing up to The Cairnwell which is marked by the weather station.

There is a choice of descent that either takes a longer walk along the ski vehicle tracks or alternatively dropping straight down be the fence of the infamous Tiger ski run.
