Tom Buidhe summit cairn
|Summit:|| 3,140 feet NO213787 |
Tom Buidhe is a mountain in Angus, which reaches a height of 3,140 feet at its summit, and so it qualifies as a Munro. It is at the south-eastern corner of a large flat summit plateau taking in four Munros: Tom Buidhe, Tolmount, Carn an Tuirc and Cairn of Claise.
The summit of Tom Bhuidhe itself is rounded and really just a small rise on the main plateau. The hill lacks any distinctive features and has no direct corries on any of its faces unlike its neighbouring Munros. Further south however there is a deep corrie that drops to Canness Glen. These slopes here are steep and craggy.
The nearest neighbouring Munro is Tolmount, directly to the north. Carn an Tuirc and Carn of Clause are further west. The four are normally climbed together.
There is parking available just north of the Glenshee Ski Centre on the A83. From here easy paths lead up the western face of Carn an Tuirc and on to the rest of the Munros on the plateau. There are other routes that approach from the east up Glen Doll
