Càrn Mòr Dearg is a mountain in Inverness-shire, which reaches a height of 4,003 feet at its summit, and so it qualifies as a Munro and as the eighth-highest mountain in the British Isles. It is in the Nevis Range, close to the town of Fort William and to the mightiest of them all, Ben Nevis, which stands just to the south-east. It is linked to Ben Nevis by the spectacular Càrn Mòr Dearg Arête.

The ascent of Càrn Mòr Dearg from the north (start by golf course), the traverse of the arête, and the scramble up the north side of Ben Nevis make one of the best horse-shoe routes in Scotland.[1]
