Carn a Choire Bhoidheach sits in the northern section of a large plateau known as The Mounth. It separates the peaks of Carn an t-Sagairt Mor to the west and the fantastic Lochnager to the east. The summit itself is rounded and little more than a bump on the plateau but Carn a Choire Bhoidheach boasts a series of impressive corries. To the north lies The Stuic, this is an extremely craggy face dropping to little Loch nan Eun in the corrie base. On the south face an equally impressive craggy face known as The Eagles Rock drops sharply to the northern shores Dubh Loch. Most of the other faces are fairly moderate in comparison to these.
A broad ridge runs NW to connect to neighbouring Munro Carn an t-Sagairt Mor further west on The Mounth and a wide NE ridge connects to the southern face of Lochnager.
Access to these hills is normally from Glen Callater to the west. There is parking available just off the A93 at Auchallater Farm. From here it’s a fairly long walk in to the head of loch Callater. Carn an t-Sagairt Mor’s NW face can be ascended from here and then on to the rest of the Munros on The Mounth.
