I did the Beinn a' Ghlo group of hills today, with Alex McBride, from the nice new car park at Loch Moraig near Blair Atholl. This is a repeat for us both, but we included a new Munro Top for me, which I had missed previously. 1) Carn Liath (975m), a Munro 2) Bràigh Coire Chruinn-bhalgain (1070m), a Munro 3) Càrn nan Gabhar (1121m), a Munro 4) Airgiod Bheinn (1061m), a Munro Top Beinn a' Ghlo, means hill of the mist, but that wasn't the case today. Blue skies today the end and cracking views all day, 09:35hrs all in.chillyman822/07/2023
Solo. (A top).
I didn't fancy the long walk out on tired legs, also Carn Liath was in cloud on approach, so opted to do the circuit of Airgiod Bheinn and the three Beinn A' Ghlo Munros anti-clockwise. It turned out to be a good choice.TRG31828/07/2022

Part of the Beinn a'Ghlo round.Robinho0820/08/2017
With TMD. We walked the Beinn a Ghlò range. Firstly climbing Càrn Liath (975m) before continuing to Bràigh Coire Chruinn-bhalgain (1070m), then climbing to Airgiod Bheinn (1061m) before finally reaching the ultimate summit of the range at Càrn nan Gabhar, at 1129 metres. From the last summit there is no easy way back, so we dropped very steeply down the side of the mountain to Loch Loch to see the RAF Hercules XV 193 crash site, before making the long walk back through the valley on the track.meltdiceburg02/06/2017
