Parked by the bridge, 1km SE of Inchbae Lodge, then west to where Norman Wares marked a small track up through the wood. Easy climbed but does draw you away east of where you really want to go. Then a good walk across the top. I descended down the firebreak where the trees have been replanted, very quick although a bit rough but gets you back onto the track. Probably better to ascend this way too.Simon Winton25/01/2020
From footbridge on A835 - followed forest track W and then SW to it's end, directly up besidde forest on vague path then across moor to summit, descent via firebreak / young forest area back to track. Almost 2.5 hours return. Might have been shorter approach via firebreak.willyross19/12/2018
Despite two months of drought this was a wet walk accompanied by cloots and midgesOh no I forgot...20/07/2018
Solo trip. Ascent up track, easting 397, as others have described. Firebreak NNW of Carn Gaineamhach is not recommended: new tree seedlings planted on steep mounds with deep holes to match.Invicta1420/05/2018

From Inchbae bridge by tack and straight line over tussocks.Eddie25/01/2007
Parked on old bit of A835. On road, over river on forest track for 3/4 mile, then uphill in very wide fire break. Through gate in deer fence to upper forest line. Uneven trudge uphill through bracken and tussock and deer grass to top of Carn Gaineamhach with turbine. Mist came down as I made my way down to a wide col and up to column with no FB built in. 13.15.arranc03/07/2006

NOTE: 05/04/2019. The bridge E of Inchbae Lodge has been demolished and is being rebuilt. Probably best not to try this route for a month or two.Gillblank
