Carn a’ Ghille Chearr is the highest point in the county of Moray and sits on the border of Banffshire. It has an elevation of 710 m (2,329 ft) and forms part of the Cromdale Hills. The summit is a rounded hill although less frequently visited than its neighbour.
A start point can be made close to the Bridge of Shannoch. Much of the climb is through deep heather as a lot of the old paths to the top have become overgrown. From the summit looking south, the Cairngorms can be seen. A trig point marks the summit.
