Nae Bad at all.summitter14/04/2019
First day out in new year break. Straightforward route following pylon track to high point then animal tracks to summit.Crumblie229/12/2018
If I was to do this again I would walk up the estate road until about 200m from Loch Carn Nan Baden. Then just go straight up to the summit. However my route up was on the road, then the pylon track and through the Heather over to the top. It was fine and Carn nam Bad isnít bad at all as the view is lovely.elizyanne28/05/2018
A nice hill, perfectly designed for loafing in the sun enjoying the splendid views. Shame about the tedious walk up the forestry track and the Beauly Denny power line. Other notes: There's a decent parking space about 200 m up the road in the Cannich direction on the left. The entrance to Mellness house and the logging road has got a stile, and all other gates can be opened.Gill08/04/2018
From Millness, small space to park opposite track. Frollowed track to near summit then quick up and return, both cairns visited. Shame about the new pylons...N.Morters01/05/2017
From Meltness, also ran up Meall Cluainidh.NormanW14/04/2017
Up the track, down the pylons. 64 mins round trip, jogging where I could.AndyS28/12/2016
Per Nordicsar but unless you cycled I am not sure how you got in and out in 90 minutes.Topographer5719/09/2016
From A831 at Milness Cottage.ChrisR31/05/2016
Pretty much up the pylon route. Someone has planted rhododendrons along the track. Why?jenx21/03/2016
With Jenx, parked on road near Millness (entrance to riding school). Over stile by the fortress gate and followed track NE. Service road for pylons now gone, so stick with forest track, gets you to the near point from where its possible to easily scale the hill. In and back inside 90 mins.nordicstar21/03/2016
Parked on the verge outside the Deer Centre. A 5 mile walk taking around 2 hours 10 minutes in glorious sunshine. Solo. The pylons now spoil the vista.bolton13/02/2016
Made use of the new track created along the pylon route. Good views to the Northwest from the summit.Peterb23/12/2015
Sunny day. Parked in a spot on the road up the road from the entrance of the gate. Lots of pylons.with Peter Dawestallblond14/06/2015
A simple Marylin on our rest day.nickywood112/06/2015

Walk up new track from road at Millness, Dry day limited viewsNozzer19/03/2015
Parked Millness. Security guard looked intimidating but allowed me through. Up track to summit and more direct route back next to pylons.AndrewFinnimore26/04/2014
Walked up from Millness. Newly upgraded track on Beauly-Denny power line development.Almanac05/04/2014
Bad and getting worse! Followed the roads NE that are being used for the construction of the phylons on a damp and misty day. A walk recommended to be done in thick fog.mindlessflogger21/12/2012

From Milness. Sunny spells, good viewsiangalbraith13/04/2010
Parked on verge near Millness. Over 2 deer fence stiles, through forest to a third locked gate needing a climb over. To top of track clear of forest and uphill over rough moor and into 12inch heather - heavy going - used deer tracks to reach a fence on ridge, turned left and to top at 10.45. No view - mist.arranc04/07/2006
