A long walk from the car park at Coignafern Old Lodge. Solo.Dangerous Dave24/09/2019

From Wester Aberchalder. Ascended by track to Beinn Bhuraich then over the moor. Descended by track beside Aberchalder Burn.davidpettit8401/06/2019
From Strathdearn past Coignafearn Lodge and Dalbeg. Lovely glen which feels very remote all the way in until you reach the summit and see diesel generators and telephone mast and multiple wind turbines with their motorway-width access tracks. As others have said, stay with the streams from the end of the track and the ground isn't really too bad.benalder28417/06/2018
From north, track to Dunmaglass. Track is good all the way to the summit, but two diversions at 600m around fords in spate, followed by snow pack cover, prevented me from cycling higher. Showers amounted to much more than predicted by MWIS. A modern cabin at 700m was unlocked.Topographer5720/04/2018
Glorious day. Cycled in from Drumnaglas as far as snow line, then walked. Windfarm road steep in places, tough climbing but very fast descent. Lots of hare, mostly still in winter coats.douglas_easton14/04/2018

A nice round from Dalbeg bothy though weather was miserable. Two sections of track and following streams as much as possible meant ground not too bad except for section after main summit. Carn Mhic Lamhair(Ct), Carn na Saobhaide(C), Beinn Bhuraich(Ct), Meall a Bhuailt(Gt) and a diversionon the way back to Carn na Saobraidhe E top.dickscroop30/06/2017
Fourth visit, on TGO Challenge as previously. Wind farm not as intrusive as I'd feared. South to Carn GearresithColin Crawford17/05/2017
From Coignafearn; what an amazingly beautiful valley. Rode the bike up to the bothy, but the landrover track continues up the hill. It seemed that the only sensible thing to do was ride Ďim cowboy. A small amount of pushing and some mildly technical riding got me to the end of the track. Very pleasant, easy walking following the stream up the hill, and only a small number of peat hags to negotiate higher up. Itís not entirely clear that the cairn is at the highest point, so I wandered around a bit just to make sure. Splendid views west, but what a shame itís spoiled by wind turbines. The descent proved the wisdom of putting some effort into the cycling on the way up. Very fast and great fun, and not entirely under control in places.Gill06/05/2017
Parked by telephone box taking tracks almost all the way to Carn Mhic Iamhair, then Carn na Saobhaidhe. Summit of Saobhaidhe very flat with cairn plus the high point and other near-candidates. Continued to Beinn Bhuraich, Meall a'Bhuailt and Beinn Dubhcharaidh, descending N a short way to pitch tent. Fine sunny day made this a surprisingly pleasant route. Easy descent down to the Glen and starting point.RobertP08/04/2017

Ascended with bikes via the River E and the Corriegarth wind farm, then headed south east to track for descent to the River Findhorn. Lots of snow, which made traversing the peat hags easier but riding tracks impossible.quadbarrel20/03/2016
