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

Lots of snow - particularly on the lower slopes - for some reason the ridge to Sgor Ding had very little snow. Hard going in places. The views today were phenomenal, clear as a bell in every direction. Came up via White Bridge and home via Sgor Dubh.tsharp04/04/2012

Staying at Muir Cottage, Cairngorm Club hut. With a fellow club member. It was very cold - 0ºC with slight falling snow which soon eased off. Walked along the road to Linn of Dee and then along track to White Bridge. From there we walked along the NE side of the River Dee along a path that had been quite nicely repaired until we came to two burns after about a mile. We followed the second one briefly and then struck up the hillside keeping to snow where possible as the snow was mostly firm. There was a very strong wind. We aimed for the summit of Sgòr Mòr. Just below the summit we climbed up a steep snow slope, kicking and cutting steps. On the summit it was not possible to stand up at times. We descended SE to go down a gully which ended on W side of a wood low down in the glen. Snow lying at all levels, but not much in the glen bottom. Temperature at summit of Sgòr Mòr estimated at -7ºC with wind speed of 70mph producing effective temperature of -27ºC taking into account wind chill.pwbellarby12/03/2005
