From mine car park up path to Carn Dulack pass then along ridge and on to Carn Mor. Returned by Carn Liath but dropped north so a bit of heather bashing to path and ruin before reaching car.SS26/07/2020
Climbed with Richard when staying at Aviemore. A quick run from Lecht. Not bad weather with the exception of a few heavy /short showers.amcculloch20/06/2019

During a windy week in Tomintoul. With Smithy on the windiest day of the lot from deserted ski centre car park at the Lecht. Started just L of the chalet & to R of ski run then picked up fence higher up, following that all the way to Carn Liath at which point the we were nearly blown in to the next county. Not such a feat considering that it was less than 5m away, I suppose! Continued a short distance further to a prominent cairn & followed the obvious path NE over the intervening top to the summit for another glorious view. Tried to be clever coming back by traversing underneath the ridgeline to avoid the wind but picked up the wrong fence & ended up 1km off course. Back to the ridgeline & into the block headwind gale back to the Lecht. Made do with a cup of hot chocolate in the cafe rather than get blown off Carn Ealasaid.NotReallyABagger11/09/2018
A very good short walk from Well of Lecht. Good thin path to Chapeltown up, then simply over broad ridge lines. Easy, undemanding, but thoroughly enjoyable. Carn Mor involved a retrace from this starting place but the easy walking meant sub Naismith times- even for the elderly (me!). Finish over Carn Liath. Rain in the wind for all the 3h15,but never threatening, clear summits on this walk.pwheeler15/07/2018
Lovely stroll from the Well of Lecht. Idyllic day. After the long dry spell, very good conditions under foot.dal05/07/2018
Followed the ridge from the Lecht to Carn Mor and back.davidpettit8401/04/2018
With George W of GHC. A windy mild day. Easy track along the ridge but done in terrible windy weather.Play2End27/10/2017
An afternoon walk after doing west side of A938 in morning made for a long day. From ski station up to Meikle Corr Riabhach, Carn Liath, Monadh an t'Slochd Leith and Carn Mor, back over Carn Liath and angled down to road just before ski station.dickscroop24/08/2017
Out & back from The Well of the Lecht. On own.MorecambeMonkey16/05/2017
From Chapeltown via Ladderfoot and nicely graded path up to the ridge. Peat hags dry and easy to negotiate today. On to Monadh an-t-Sluichd Leith and Carn Liath and back via the ruins at Clash of Scanlan.milimana02/09/2016
Weather fair.MountainMac09/08/2016
From car park for Scalan, clockwise via Chapeltown, and Ladderfoot, descent from plateau via NNW ridge after point 800 and down to Mains of Scalan. Visited former seminary. Recommended. Initially v warm and sunny, then thunder/lightning and heavy rain as ascended Ladder. Careful map and GPS work on rainy, cloudy plateau. Easy 4.5 hours in stops. Solo, after work in Aberdeen.niallp24/06/2016
From Chapeltown, the Ladder, which is a very good and scenic route. The peat hags and bogs after Dun Muir were full of snow, which varied from rock hard to thigh deep. The stroll over the summit is absolutely delightful and easy, and then more snowy peat hags before Carn Liath. I went down along the ridge to Clash of Scalan, which is a bit of a vegetable fest.Gill21/03/2016
Parked off the A939 to the NW then up to point 747 metres then onto Carn Liath, Monadh an t-Sluichd Leith and Carn Mor on a dry, grey morning with high cloud. I returned a similar way but lower and more direct than the fence line.Dugswell219/10/2015
From Chapeltown, cycled up to highest point along track to Ladderfoot, then directly up easy ridge. There would have been perfect visibility without a cloud in the sky - but for heather burning, from the summit I could see seven separate fires.Topographer5701/10/2015
On way home from Langie Ballater meet.Grinner21/06/2015
Lots of hags on way but once through these was fine. Good walk to summit. This lump was more scenic than the lump at Ealasaid. Company: Soloiandesbottes14/05/2015
Dry, dull but cloud well above the tops. Views over Whisky country to the east and north, and the big Cairngorm tops to the south. Pleasant walking on short cropped grass less easy going on the boggy sections.kenmorti22/03/2015
From Chapletown. With PM. Great Wx and vis.CJM12/02/2015
Parked near the distillery at Chapeltown. Headed up to Corrunich through the snow covered tracks and then south up the ridge. Wonderful day in calm conditions. With Meds.bolton12/02/2015
Chapeltown (what lurid lighting on the distillery) to Ladderfoot amd then more direct return route. Very strong winds and heavy rain throughout. 'May you build a ladder to the stars and climb on every rung. May you stay forever young.'Martin R14/11/2014

From Well of Lecht, track past old building then up hillside to Carn Liath. Continued along decrepit fence over another summit to trig on Carn Mor. Showers and rainbows helped improve a dreary landscape.Aye Jimmy28/10/2005
