Carn nan Gobhar is a mountain on the border of Ross-shire with Inverness-shire, which reaches a height of 3,255 feet at its summit, and so it qualifies as a Munro.

The mountain stands on the northern side of Glen Strathfarrar, remote, lonely and some 25 miles west of the city of Inverness. It is usually climbed in a round along with the neighbouring Munros, Sgùrr a' Choire Ghlais and Sgùrr na Ruaidhe.

There is another Càrn nan Gobhar, also a Munro with almost exactly the same height, 11 miles to the southwest, on the opposite side of Glen Strathfarrar. The name in both cases means "Cairn of the Goat".
