Details for Carn Bhac

Carn Bhac is the highest point of a broad 3km undulating summit ridge of eroded peat bogs running south-westerly to north-easterly which has 3 tops situated to the southwest of Braemar village. On the south west of the ridge is the once official top status Carn a' Bhutha (907m) which now relegated, then east of that the south-west unnamed top (920m) of Carn Bhac and a further 1.5km leads to the true summit point. There is a westerly broad ridge which connects to Beinn Iutharn Mhor.

Its appearance from below is a rounded hill and it's marked with a medium sized cairn. It's a munro which is not visited often due to it's remoteness set in the wilds of the Mounth and having no really interesting features.

Usual access is from the ruined Altanour Lodge which is some 8km from Inverey. Alteratively it's usually combined with Beinn Iutharn Mhor which is climbed first and access to Carn Bhac is from the south-western top which drops to a col marked 818 between the 2 peaks.

The number of registered munro-madness users who have climbed Carn Bhac is Eighteen
