Continuing the rolling grass and heather covered landforms of the eastern Glenshee hills, Creag nan Gabhar is the most northerly summit, with just enough prominence from Carn an Tuirc to justify its status in the list of Corbetts.

At just over 400m above the A93, a hike up the heather and grass-covered slopes of Creag nan Gabhar makes for a short afternoon's hillwalk.
