Details for Cairn of Claise

Cairn of Claise is the tallest of a group of four munros which rise gently on the south western side of this high moorland plateau. The others munros are Carn an Tuirc (1019 metres), Tolmount (958 metres) and Tom Buidhe (957 metres). Its western side overlooks Garbh-Choire which has steep rocky slopes dropping down to the head of Glen Clunie a few kilometres north-east of the Cairnwell Pass, showing shallow grassy corries and rounded shoulders from the A93 road. To the north of the plateau stands the head of Glen Callater with a steep craggy face above this glen, and to the north-west is the rounded topped munro Tom Buidhe. The four can be climbed in a round tour from the head of Glen Clunie or even add Glas Maol & Creag Leacach for a longer outing.

The number of registered munro-madness users who have climbed Cairn of Claise is Fifty
