From Spittal of Glenshee via Glenlochsie to Glas Tulaichean, then on to Carn an Righ and return via Loch nan Eun and Gleann Taitneachkdbennett25/09/2016
Glas Tulaichean - Carn an Righ - GT north top (pt. 858). From Dalmunzie, via Glen Lochsie's scenic and easy track and railway bed. Tougher going to Carn an Righ, a lovely view of Loch nan Run from pt. 858, then a descent over grass to the path in Glen Taitneach that becomes a track. The footbridge has not been replaced, so getting back to Dalmunzie means cold feet or wet boots.Nick Down110/09/2016

With Dave Howard. Cycled to Altanour Lodge. Walked over 3 tops of Carn Bhac, Beinn Iutharn Mhor and finally Carn an Righ. Back to bikes over Beinn Iutharn Beag. Few short showers but great visibility with tops completely clear. 7 hours.alexmaclennan30/07/2013
Cycled in from Spittal along Gleann Taitneach and walked up Beinn Lutharn Mhor and Carn an Righ. Perfect sunshine and no wind for much of day (almost too hot with 20C on summits!) A pleasant cooling fog arrived late afternoon...jonbowyer13/07/2013
With friend. After ascending Glas Tulaichean and Glas Tulaichean North Top. From summit of latter returned to col with Glas Tulaichean and followed a path going round a rather boggy area on the north side to join the path to Carn an Righ. Surprised to find two paths heading towards the col between Carn an Righ and Màm nan Carn although they joined together before the col. From col followed obvious path to summikt of Carn an Righ. Continued to Beinn Iutharn Mhòr.pwbellarby29/06/2013

From Glas Tulaichean went north to reach path and then west to carn an righ. Thick cloud.Jhimmy09/09/2012
FINAL MUNRO- From Glas Tulaichean went N to pt.930 then down to reach path, then west. The ascent of Carn an Righ from the col was much easier than its rubble/scree appearance from a distance suggested- the view to the Cairngorms along Lairig Ghru from the summit cairn (duly kissed) was a fitting finale. Return using deer paths contouring high above Glas Coire Bheag's bogs and on a path worn by the burn in Gleann Taitneach (quite rough, very pretty, lots of good flowers and moths) and the celebratory pint in the hotel's beautiful bar completed a happy day and compleated a 31-year quest.pwheeler30/06/2012
