Surrounding Glen Roy are several hills, with three of them called Carn Dearg. This Carn Dearg is the smallest of them and at 768m just scrapes into the Corbett list. A fairly innocuous and rather dull little hill with no defining characteristics !

Carn Dearg rises above grass-covered slopes at the head of Glen Roy and with a drop of just under 200m between it and its higher neighbour, Carn Dearg, these two hills are most likely to be bagged together starting from Glen Turret. There are some tracks and paths in the glen though no paths higher up.
