The Brack track all the way to the bealach, turn left over many false wee summits and visit both tops for safety. Liz says path is not good for shorter people and those with bad knees (big steps). Cold and clear, sunny.iangalbraith18/11/2018
Ardgartan - N corrie of the Brack - Cruach Fhiarach - The Brack - Cnoc Coinnich - returned via Coillessan Glen. Long out and back from point NN249029 on the Brack path. More than one false summit - not for thick mist!Mark Jackson23/08/2017
Came back to this after it was made uo to a Graham top. Started on 'The Brack'path from Forestry car park until about 100m after coming out of forest then more or less on a compass bearing. Some interesting ground! - just have faith in grass and roots as handholds. Descent was a line much closer to the col; between the summit and The Brack.dickscroop23/04/2017
