Geal Charn (Alder) - DESCRIPTION

Geal Charn is the most easterly Munro in a group of 3 that sit on a long craggy ridge running from Strath Ossian in the SW to Loch Pattack in the NE. Geal Charn is a large flat topped Munro with serious crags to its north and north east. A long ridge runs NE separating two corries to connect to the outlying Munro Carn Dearg if you have enough energy to include it in your day this can be done. A SW ridge connects via a high col to another neighbouring Munro Aonach Beag. Directly east of the summit lies a subsidiary top of Sgor Iutharn and this ridge continues east dropping down sharply to the valley floor. This is the ridge normally used for the ascent or descent from the group of Munros and makes a fantastic end or start to your day with its impressively steep southern slopes.

Geal Charn and its neighbouring Munros are among the most remote and are well placed back from any public roads. You can access them by a long walk in from either Glen Spean to the north or from Dalwhinne to the NE. You can also take the west highland train line to Corrour halt just west of Loch Ossian. This will reduce your walk in time.

Geal Charn is a fantastic Munro and should hopefully guarantee a good day out on the hills for all.
