Carn an Tuirc

Height:1019 m

Carn an Tuirc is a big rounded hill that sits just south of Braemar not far from the Glen Shee ski area. There are a lot of very accessible Munros in this area and Carn an Tuirc is one of them, it is only a couple of kilometres away from the nearest (A-class) road and the starting altitude is just below 500m. Carn an Tuirc sits on a high plateau with some 5 other Munro's and while it is a long day to all 6, it is feasible because of the high starting height.
