Carn nan Gobhar is part of a group of 4 Munros that lie to the north of Glen Strathfarrar and East of Loch Monar. The 4 can be climbed in one outing as they are all connected via a series of ridges and cols but you can happily split them into smaller days. Carn nan Gobhar is one of the central Munros of the group. The summit ridge is curved running SW to NE. The south west section of the ridge curves round the rim of the corrie Creag Ghorm to the north leading to connecting Munro Sgurr a Choire Ghlais. The eastern ridge drops to a col at the head of Coire na Sleaghaich before leading up the NW ridge of the other connecting Munro Sgurr na Ruaidhe. There is also a southern ridge that drops to An Socach and then into Coire Mhuillidh. The slopes are easy and accessible however most people will approach Carn nan Gobhar from either of its connecting Munros.
Access is limited and will inevitably involve a long walk in as these really are remote Munros. Most people start at Inchmore just off the A831 further east. Stalkers paths then lead towards the power station where these hills can be tackled.
