Beinn a Ghlo is huge hill taking in 3 separate Munros these being Carn Liath, Carn nan Gabhar and Braigh Coire Chruinn-bhalgain. They are all connected in one long ridge SW to NE but wriggles its way there round the rims of corries form all angles making it a superb airy walk along to Carn nan Ghabhar at its NE end. From the A9 road Carn Liath is the most prominent (as itís at the front) and appears as a conical peak with a well scarred path up its entire SW ridge. Braigh Coire Chruinn-bhalgain is next, with its top visible from most angles. Carn nan Gabhar is hidden until you are high up on Beinn a Ghlo as it stands back shy and retiring hidden by many subsidiary tops and ridges.
As mentioned all the hills are connected by a long ridge that wriggles its way up round a whole string of corries giving some superb stony craggy cliffs on either side.
Carn Liath itself is the smallest of the Munros and made up of two main ridges. It's SS ridge is wide and easily accessible. This is the normal route of ascent to gain the summit ridges of Beinn a Ghlo. The NE ridge is much narrower and is the start of the main traverse over the Beinn a Ghlo range.
There is parking available on the road between Blair Atholl through Glen Fender. A short walk in will take you to the SW flanks of Carn Liath.
Overall Carn nan Ghabhar and the whole of the Beinn a Ghlo range is one of the more well known sets of Munros in this area and quite rightly so , its a superb walk with brilliant views throughout.
