Glas Maol is a large rounded hill that has had its northern slopes used for the Glenshee ski Centre. The summit has a flat plateau running SE to NW. The Munro has 4 main ridges heading from the summit. The NW ridge leads to Meal Odhair and right into the heart of Glenshee ski territory. This ridge extends further west to The Cairnwell. The SW ridge sprawls out for 2km right down to The Spittal of Glenshee taking in the connected Munro Creag Leacach along the way. There is a dry stone wall connecting the 2 Munros which always helps with the navigation. The SE and NE ridges branches off round the rims of a deep gulley dropping to Caenlochain Glen. The headwalls of this glen make up the eastern face of Glas Maol and are seriously craggy. This is undoubtedly Glas Maol’s best feature.
Most people access Glas Maol from the A93 where there are easy paths leading to the NW ridge of Meall Odhair and on to the summit of Glas Maol. Including Creag Leacach to the route is not demanding and with the ease of access from the A93 this should be one of the easier days on the hills.
