Glas Tulaichean Carn an Righ Sunday 22 August 2010

With permisssion parked at Dalmunzie Hotel and began walk up the dismantled railway line to reach the ruined building of Glenlochsie Lodge. I always remember the first time doing this walk as this is fourth time but did not walk up railway line but path on other side of river which reached ruined lodge on wrong side, so had to cross river which was pretty much in spate (March) I would not recommend this as had to throw rucksac over and remove some items of clothing and wade nearly swim over, absolutely freezin !  Anyway  the route continues up a well established path that takes you right to the summit, we had a heavy shower during the ascent but the cloud cleared while at the summit.

Looking from the path back down Glenlochsie

From the summit of Glas Tulaichean we continued on N ridge until ground was less steep then turned and desended NW to reach the path on the south side of Mam nan Carn. Followed this obvious path to the stoney summit of Carn an Righ.

Path from Carn an Righ along Mam nan Carn Munro Beinn Lutharn Mhor on extreme right

From the summit of Carn an Righ followed path back along south side of Mam nan Carn and almost all the way back to Loch nan Eun but just before reaching loch cut across peathags (nightmare) at the end of N ridge of Glas Tulaichean to descend and reach the path that leads to Loch nan Eun from Glen Taitneach.Then we followed this long path back to Dalmunzie Hotel.
