Details for The Cairnwell

The Cairnwell is usually climbed from the Glen Shee ski centre, which is at a height of 650 m, making this probably one of the easiest of the 284 Munros to bagg. It is often climbed with Munros Carn Aosda.

The eastern slopes which tower above the road are littered with ski equipment and are a bit of an eyesore. Also the top is not very pretty, having a small hut on top of the cairn and there being buildings plus a large aerial as well.

This mountain however is a ideal introduction to bagging munros and still boasts glorious views of the area on a clear day.

The number of registered munro-madness users who have climbed The Cairnwell is Fifty-Five
