Details for Carn Liath

Carn Liath is a peak of munro status and is little more than a rise at the eastern end of a high plateau ridge which runs . It has a very flat and stony summit plateau and is marked with a large carn. The best feature of this munro are the crags of "Coire nan Gal" & "Coire Dubh" on the eastern flanks of the mountian and are often missed as they aren't on route to Stob Poite Coire Ardair which is usually climbed on the same outing. On the south side of Carn Liath gentle slopes lead down to Glenshirra Forest which is seldom visited as it's very remote.

Usual access is via the hills southern nose from a col to the north of the knoll Na Cnapanan and then onto the ridge to Stob Poite Coire Ardair. If a full traverse is started from Carn Liath the walker has ample time to study the splendid north bounding wall of Coire Ardair if the weather is permitting.

This hill is usually climbed alongside Stob Poite Coire Ardair and Creag Meagaidh to give long satisfying day on the hills .

The number of registered munro-madness users who have climbed Carn Liath is Twenty-Nine
