Carn an Righ and its subsidiary peak stac na h-lolair form an arc round a high up corrie. The summit of Carn an Righ looks over the SW headwall of the coire. It is a conical shaped summit with steep crags on its southern faces which are best avoided. There are also steep crags to the north of the NE summit ridge. The hill rises sharply from the SW end of Glen Ey.
Carn an Righ is normally climbed in conjunction with Glas Tulaichean which is connected via a low col to the SE ridge of Carn an Righ.
Access is normally from The Spittal of Glenshee on the A93 to the SE. Itís a long walk in with Glas Tulaichean logically being climbed first before tackling Carn an Righ via the above mentioned col and descending back down to the same col.
