Details for Carn an Righ

Carn an Righ is a great round stony mass that lies off the main chain of hills, so walkers seldom visit it;but it gives views straight up the Lairig Ghru probably making Carn an Righ one of the finest viewpoints for The Cairngorms.

The summit splits into three small ridges heading south, north-east and westerly to a smaller top (Stac na h-Iolair).

The slopes to the north of the north-eastern ridge are steep and there are also some crags. The southern side is rocky and steep and drops down into Gleann Mor.

The normal route of ascent is via the southern ridge going quite easy over short grass interspersed with scree. At the top there is a more extensive blanket of stone.
