Carn Dearg Mor
Carn Dearg Mor lies on the W edge of the Caringorms SE of Kingussie.

The mountain consists of a long curved ridge with three tops Carn Dearg Beag (694m) to the N, Carn Dearg Mor towards the S and Carn Dearg (789m) to the SW.

There are few steep slopes or crags and this hill is surrounded by tracks/paths.

Carn Dearg [Glen Eachach North]
This is the Carn Dearg (815m) which lies to the N of Gleann Eachach. Carn Dearg has three main ridges, NNE to Glas Charn (790m), SW to Teanga Mhor (which is not actually a top), and the longest ridge which runs W to Carn na Larach (745m), W again to Beinn Bhan then S to Teanga Bheag (641m).

The summit cone is a triangular pyramid with steep slopes to the E leading down to a small spur Meallan Odhar (700m). The easiest ascent is from the bealach joining Carn Dearg (815m) with Carn Dearg (768m).

Carn Dearg [Glen Eachach South]
This is the Carn Dearg (768m) which lies to the S of Gleann Eachach.

Carn Dearg has a conical top from which ridges run SW to Sron a' Ghoill, and SE to Carn Dearg Beag (680m) where this ridge branches S to Creag Corrag and E to Glas Beinn (648m).

The lower S slopes of Carn Dearg are very steep, but a less steep ascent is possible from the junction of Glen Turret and Gleann Eachach, WSW of the summit or by the Allt na Glas Bheinne to the SE.

The S slopes are steep with unusual shelves known as the parallel roads, which are believed to be the shorelines of an ancient loch.

Carn Dearg [Glen Roy East]
This is the Carn Dearg (834m) which lies to the E of Glen Roy, and which necessitates crossing the River Roy.

Carn Dearg is a sprawling hill with ridges running N to Sgurr an Fhithich, NE to Torr o' Sonn, E to Creag Tharsuinn (715m), WSW then SW to a col leading to Leana Mhor and finally WNW to Carn Bhrunachain (723m).

Due to the location of the nearest bridge the preferred ascent routes are the ridges flanking Coire na Reinich. The NW slopes are steep with unusual shelves known as the parallel roads, which are believed to be the shorelines of an ancient loch.

Carn Ealasaid
Carn Ealasaid lies SW of Beinn a' Chruinnich, the E slopes of which is the Lecht Ski Area, therefore an ascent from the E is not recommended.

Carn Ealasaid sits at the intersection six radiating ridges of varying length giving it a star like configuration. Of these ridges three are significant; the first runs NNE to Beinn a' Chruinnich to which Carn Ealasaid is connected by a high col; the second runs SSE to Cairn Vaich offering an ascent route from Cock Bridge; the third runs NW then forks W to Tolm Buirich (693m) and NNW towards Blairnamarrow on the A939.

A path from Dunanfiew by the River Don N to Blairnamarrow on the A939 passes over the W shoulder of Carn Ealasaid. This path passes within 500m of the summit and offers ascent routes from the S and N.

Carn Liath [Braemar]
Carn Liath and Culardoch lie either side of the Bealach Dearg and are usually climbed together. The walk in is quite long, which adds to the logic of bagging both hills in a single expedition.

Carn Liath has two tops on the summit ridge, an un-named top (862m) to the NW and Carn Liath (862) to the south east (Corbett Baggers are recommended to visit both tops in case future technology indicates the second top to be the true summit).

Carn Liath is almost divided in two by two corries, Liath-choire Mhor to the NE and Coire Glas Allt Beag to the SW. From the 862m top a long ridge runs SSW to Meall Glasail Mor (676m) and from Carn Liath a parallel long ridge runs SSW to Meikle Elrick (709m), with a spur E to Creag a chait (649m).

Carn Mor [Glen Dessary]
Carn Mor is a mountain with a split personality. To the E and SE it has moderate slopes, becoming steep in a few places but the slopes are generally crag free. To the W and NW, however, this hill has the character of its neighbours in the Rough Bounds of Knoydart - being steep and very craggy.

The normal approach is from Strathan in the E via the E ridge of Carn Mor which avoids the most difficult terrain.

Carn Mor [Glen Livet]
Carn Mor is the highest of the ladder hills and lies on a 7.5km long ridge that runs from Miekle Corr Riabhach (779m), overlooking the Lecht Road in the S, to Letterach (788m) in the N without dropping below 700m.

Carn Mor has three ridges; SSW to Monadh an t-Sluich Leith (800m); NE to Brow Mor branching SE to Dun Muir where a path passes close to its summit; and NW turning NNW towards Ladderfoot where a rough road from Chapeltown terminates.

Carn na Drochaide
The main ridge of Carn na Drochaide runs from Creag a' Chleirich (650m) in the SE to Carn na Criche (737m) in the NW. The summit of Carn na Drochaide lies in the centre of this ridge, and from here a further ridge runs SSW. This ridge is labelled in OS maps as Carn Dearg but there is no top, just a broadening ridge.

Tracks in Glen Quoich to the SW and Gleann an t-Slugain offer ascent routes, but the former is shorter and on easier slopes.

Carn na Nathrach
Carn na Nathrach lies in the middle of a long ridge that runs W from Sron Beinne Mheadhoin (nose of the middle hill) over Carn na Nathrach and Beinn Mheadhoin to taper gently downwards as it turns WSW.

This long ridge is the obvious ascent route from Kinlochan in the W, but its lower slopes are forested. There are several minor ridges on Carn na Nathrach's craggy northern slopes, and these are best avoided.
