Cycled to forest edge from Inverlael CP. Good views of the Beinn Dearg hills and Seana Bhraigh.IanHHill18/08/2018
Solo. From the Walkers Carpark at Inverlael up forest tracks and then ATV track from track junction at NH218871. The ATV track goes up to the summit plateau to the west of the cairn which marks the summit. Excellent views.pwbellarby11/06/2018
From Inverlael on hot sunny day. Beinn Bhreac - Meall Dubh - Creag Deabharan.RobertP25/05/2018
From Inverlael, cycled via bridge at 191854 as far as 206855. From there, a rough and steep track heads up north through the forest, across a bigger track, onto the open hill and continues as high as 500m. Some fine views of Beinn Dearg group despite intermittent hill fog and showers.Topographer5730/08/2017
From Inverlael. Didn't find the atv track but the going was easy. Pleasant hill with good views. Galltywenallt25/08/2017
Parked near the boathouse on main road and cycled to bottom of footpath, Easy walk up to wide open summit. Great views west in particular.Campbell Singer22/05/2017
From Inverlael. Heavy snow falling at summit and on descent, but sunny at sea level.NormanW22/04/2017
From the walkers car park at Inverlael. Took a circuitous route over Carn Mor at 246870. Then over quite haggy terrain to Beinn Breac itself. Stunning views at the summit and also great views down Loch Broom from a prominent point 208884, well worth a detour instead of heading straight back down the track.Peterb07/02/2017
After being told there was stalking this early in July in Glen Achatt we came round to Leckmelm and climbed Breac and it's eastern top. Good ground on the whole and better weather than forecast.nordicstar28/07/2016
Rather a long trek between the two tops.jenx28/07/2016
Pine Marten seen crossing forestry track at NH204852.h3cla03/06/2016
Sneaked this one in during a brief respite in between squally and very heavy rain/snow. From Inverlael, an easy walk up through the forest, onto a land rover track and then an atv track almost to the top of the hill. Going was good on firm snow once on the moor. The hill doesn't look at all exciting from below, but the summit plateau was very atmospheric in the snow, with mist coming and going. It's a great view point too, even caught a glimpse of Ben Hope. Wildlife notes: there was an eagle around most of the way up, and it came within about 10 feet of me, flying below me along the river. This was followed by snow buntings escorting me down the hill. Nice!Gill18/02/2016
Beinn Eilideach, Meall Cruaidh, Creagan na Radhairc, Meall Dubh, Beinn Bhreac, Creag Deabharan from Leckmelmjimbloomer10/04/2015
A long day to do this, the two nearest Graham tops and, across the valley to the north, Meal nam Bradhan. About an hour each way up and down Strath Ochell on bike plus 9.75 hours walking in very difficult conditions. Very wet thawing snow and where no snow running with meltwater, absolutely saddened ground and got wet feet in deep stream crossing in first half hour.dickscroop02/04/2015

Ascent From east side of A835 north of Allt Raon a'Chroisy. Did both 660m contour rings to be sure I'd done it.Alan Moore02/06/2011
From Inverlael. Into forest across stream uphill on zig zags to top road. To locked gate at end of forest steeply up on track to open moorland.
