Bike in from Lin of Dee - good track to White bridge, then good further half mile, after which very rough. Impossible to bike for me most of time - should have left bike at first building after White Bridge and walked the rest. Also four fords knee deep to cross (with bike!)carole engel06/07/2020

Cycled from Linn of Dee to 958872 on the rough tracks. Water covered stepping stones made the river crossing possible at this point. Followed good path to where it turns north, then over the moors to the north ridge. Sun came out on descent south to the col with An Sgarsoch.mindlessflogger21/03/2016

After a day's respite after our 3 summits on Grey Corries we had moved to Braemar. We set off from Linn of Dee by bike into a stiff breeze traversing the level track to the first of two significant river crossings, passing Geldie Lodge. Rob removed his socks and was rapidly cooled before we started the ascents of first An Sarsoch and then Carn an Fhidhleir. The hills were rounded grassy and clear of cloud throughout. Coming down we passed through fields of snow. Reposing streams with bikes and then a strong following wind permitted an almost hysterical rate of traverse of tracks that have given up the kilometres so reluctantly in the morning. Getting back to Braemar our lodge accommodation was ideal.david.walker4011/05/2015
Lovely and clear, not a sole to be seen! Long walk back to the tent.Play2End06/04/2015

Cycled from Linn of Dee to just above Geldie Lodge, then climbed Carn an Fhidhleir and An Sgarsoch. Scorching hot day (over 20C on summits!) made the walk rather demanding!jonbowyer20/07/2013
With Anne & Ruth Sinclair. Nice to get a rest on summit of An Sgarsoch before tackling this one. Felt great on the descent but once again feel ill on the steep ascent. Steep sides to this mountain so traversed down to help the knees, felt like a logn way out to Geldie Lodge, but once we got on the bikes an hour saw us back at the car. What a fantastic day out.LizzieG19/07/2013

Long day. big distancemunromurph01/06/2013
Climbed with Andy while staying at Ling Hut on DMC trip. Cycled in from Glen Feshie. Reasonable day but some patches of cloud and snow at the top causing poor visibility. A bit unsettling coming off Carn an Fhidhleir as there was a high avalanche risk (few inches of fresh snow on top of ice).amcculloch16/03/2013
