Solo. From Braemore Junction. I followed a new 'path' to the NE of the forest. This is not at all good. I left it to ascend the rather ill-defined west ridge of Meall Doire Faid. Went SE to reach the top of Meall nan Doireachan. Descended northwards to reach the lochan to the west of Loch Feith nan Cleireach. Joined a stalkers' path and then a track through Braemore Forest. It rained a bit and the top parts were in mist.pwbellarby23/02/2006
Parked at Braemore Junction. Around back of forest across moor east of Home Loch. On to track from Lodge and cut across moor onto quite a good path in zigs to bealach, passing waterfall on right. Mist. Steeply up on long grass mossy patches following green runs up into rocky area. To ridge on right.arranc30/06/2005

During a New Year week in Ullapool. Climbed Beinn Enaiglair with Martin66, JC, Shaky, Davy Bell & MarkW from the car park at Braemore Junction using the forest tracks & the path leading up to the Bealach nam Buthan. Good view on top interrupted by frequent show showers. Then back to the bealach & over Meall Doire Faid with Martin66 & Shaky before taking a more direct line down the hillside in a childish attempt to beat the others back to the cars.NotReallyABagger31/12/2004
