Details for Glas Maol

Glas Maol is bare rounded mountain and highest point in the Mounth hills and can be best viewed from the Cairnwell road at the head of Glen Clunie near the Seann-spideal Bridge. Its western slopes and north-east corrie, the Coire Fionn, are scarred by the ski tows and snow fences from the Glen Shee ski centre. However, the contrasting eastern side has dropping in high cliffs into the Caenlochan Glen where the River Isla source is found. The most common route of ascent goes through the western slopes, starting from the highest point of the A93 road, the Cairnwell pass. This is the highest public road in Scotland; hence only around 400 metres of ascent is involved. The broad, flat summit is where the counties of Aberdeen, Angus and Perth meet and there is a fine view to be observed especially to the south and south-west. To the south of Glas Maol lies the munro Creag Leacach that's linked via a long ridge which is unusuall in the Mounth area having a fairly narrow summit ridge which drops steeply on both sides in long slopes of scree and boulders.
