Carn an Fhidhleir is the most northern Munro is this region and is normally climbed in conjunction with neighbouring Munro An Sgarsoch. Carn an Fhidhleir is also known as Carn Eala. These are among some of the most remote Munros in Scotland with a long walk in no matter which direction you are coming from.
The hill itself is a rounded summit with little in the way of crags. The steepest slopes are on either side of the NE summit ridge. A SE ridge runs to a low col before climbing to the summit of neighbouring Munro An Sgarsoch. This ridge is wide on peaty ground giving little in the way of technical difficulties.
As mentioned Carn an Fhidhleir is one of the most remote Munros and is only accessed by a long walk in from either the north at the A9 walking up past Glen Feshie Lodge or coming from the NE following the River Dee. Another common route is from the south, just north of Blair Atholl coming up through Glen Tilt. Either direction allows a lot of the distance to be covered on bike through a network of stalkers paths.
Carn an Fhidhleir is what we like to call an expedition Munro. The Munro itself is not brilliant but the excitement of getting there is definitely the highlight of the trip.
