range provides a total of three Munros and a top. It lies to the north-east
of Blair Atholl. It is commonly traversed from SW to NE and the start
is gained from Blair Atholl by a narrow public road on the south side
of Glen Fender. This road ends near Loch Moraig where the cars are left.
Take to the
track NE, pass a small hut then climb up the path leading to the first
summit of Carn Liath (975m). A huge scar is visible on the slopes below
the top. The ridge now leads sinuously towards the col at 760m between
Carn Liath and the second summit. Beyond the col a broad ridge leads to
Braigh Coire Chruinn-bhalgain (1070m).
continues NE then east to drop down to a col at 847m. Climb east up to
the col between Carn nan Gabhar (1121m) and Airgiod Bheinn (1061m), then
turn NE along the easy ridge to gain two large cairns. The actual summit
on this summit ridge is at the NE end, where there is a cairn some 200m
past the trig point.
retrace your route along the ridges. It is also possible but best done
outwith the stalking season, to go SW over the top of Airgiod Bheinn,
descending its SW ridge and crossing rough heather moor to pick up the
track between Glen Girnaig and Loch Moraig.
