Parked near Braemore phone box, crossed river, turned left and followed ATV track to col between East Scaraben and Scaraben, then pleasant stroll to stony summit. Back by same route.willyross27/08/2019
We started from Braemore, following the track then boggy stalkers path running alongside Berrtiedale Water until about 500m past a footbridge. A difficult heather/bracken climb ensued, taking us up the north side of Meall na Caorach, eventually reaching the summit sweat-drenched and fly-bitten (yuck). After deep swigs of water we moved westwards to East Scaraben, Scaraben, then Sron Gharbh, along an increasingly rocky ridge, heading directly back to Braemore over heather then grass, finding occasional animal and vehicle tracks to ease our passage. 4.5hrs in total.summitter27/07/2019
Parked at end of road Braemore “strictly” no cars beyond there, “strictly” dogs on leads. Followed farm track west to first farm, track to stile onto open moor. Kept to ATV track when we could see it which was marked with white posts in hope that this would minimise disturbance to any nesting birds. Excellent views of Maiden Pap what a hill.rogreeves02/07/2019
