SMHC sunday walk Linda Sim, Lorraine Clark,Alan & Lyndsay Munro, Alistair Beeley, John McPherson & Willie Morris. Windy but amazing views into the CairngormsLizzieG21/10/2018
During a windy week in Tomintoul. Smithy set off for Carn Bhac from Inverey while I walked up past White Bridge from the Linn Of Dee as per SMC guidebook. On N bank of first burn after White Bridge, there is a very faint path which winds up generally NE to about 600m through the rough stuff before petering out. Then N over increasingly easier ground to the most brilliant summit view: central & eastern Gorms & particularly Beinn a Ghlo. This is what Corbetts were invented for! An enjoyable wander E along the plateau to Sgor Dubh & then SE picking up the new-ish deer fence. There are vehicle tracks & then a vague path next to, or right on the fence which helps with the heather. Handrailed this down to the gate mentioned by others scattering some roe deer in the trees. Got careless just 50m from track & turned an ankle in a heathery hole which did for the following days plans...NotReallyABagger12/09/2018

Trig revisit. SE approach from Linn of Dee car park, in wind and rain. Serious heather bashing to the ridge then nice ridge walk, good test for the waterproofs.RHW27/08/2012
Lots of snow - particularly on the lower slopes - for some reason the ridge from Sgor Mor had very little snow. Hard going in places, particularly on the way down. The views today were phenomenal, clear as a bell in every direction.tsharp04/04/2012
