Càrn nan Gobhar (R)
|Summit:|| 3,255 feet NH273438 |
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".
