Culardoch – Corbett
Culardoch misses being a Munro by 14m, being 900m in height and the normal route is from Keiloch, but we shall start at the large layby on the south side of the A93 at Inver. We follow the road to Tullochcoy farm, after which the track meanders through very pleasant deciduous woodland with interesting flowers before coming out on to the moors. We skirt Leac Ghorm, making our way up the valley before crossing over to skirt Bad nan Cuileag. Below Culardoch summit, we go through a gate in the long deer fence and head off track steeply to the top, from which excellent views of Munros such as Lochnagar and Ben Avon can be seen. We then head off down the ridge in a south-westerly direction off track to reach a well-defined track, crossing a burn and reaching the interesting building Auchtervan with its famous lum. The track continues through more deciduous woodland and farmland to Balnoe and from there back to the layby.
Walkers must wear walking boots, carry WARM and waterproof clothing, hat and gloves and take plenty food and liquids. THESE ARE ESSENTIAL. Be prepared for possible wintry conditions on top whatever the forecast.
