Càrn nan Gobhar is a mountain situated on the northern side of Glen Strathfarrar in Scotland. It stands some 40 kilometres west of the city of Inverness.

It is usually climbed along with the neighbouring Munros of Sgurr a' Choire Ghlais and Sgurr na Ruaidhe.

Somewhat confusingly there is another Càrn nan Gobhar, also a Munro with exactly the same height, situated 14 kilometres to the south west, on the opposite side of Glen Strathfarrar.
