Carn Gorm is one of the 4 Munros that make up what is known as the Glen Lyon Horseshoe or Carn Mairg group. Carn Gorm is often seen as the best in the group due to its fine conical summit. Carn Gorm is the first peak climbed if doing the route clockwise. The summit is the intersection of four ridges which gives it this great cylindrical top. The south ridge is extremely craggy and drops quickly and abruptly to Camusvrachen in Glen Lyon below. The south east ridge leads gently to Inverar and is a heavily forested area, this is the usual route of ascent up Carn Gorm. The western ridge slopes down slowly to the shores of Loch Rannoch bypassing neighbouring Corbett Beinn Dearg. Finally the northern ridge follows the rim of several corries to lead to the next Munro in the horseshoe, Meall Garbh.

As mentioned most people tend to climb Carn Gorm as part of a circular route taking in 4 Munros but it can easily be climbed on its on descending the same route you went up. It can also be easily combined with the Corbett Beinn Dearg lying to the west. What ever route you choose the best place to start is at Inverar where there is limited parking available. This is a fine vantage point to view Glen Lyon one of Scotland's most beautiful glens.
