Quite a long route taking in the 2 munros Glas Tulaichean & Carn an Righ situated in the remote area between the head of Glen Tilt and Glen Shee. The appoach to the hills is a long one but there's a track almost to summit of Glas Tulaichean. Carn an Righ has a much more remote feel to it.

There is parking available at the Dalmunzie Caslte Hotel where there's a small charge. This will cut the first two kilometres of the walk which is along the drive to the hotel.
