From Allanreid car park by bike to bridge (crossable) at Suie bothy then north by marked tracks to summit. Return by same route. Bike helped a bit.willyross08/09/2019
With M, from west. Beautiful day in wild surroundings, only marred by the plethora of windmills.douglas_easton08/09/2019
GHC Ballater weekend. A long slog up the glen to get this. Good path all the way.Play2End22/06/2019
From Allenread car par to Suie (bridge OK inspite of warning!) and then up signed tracks to summit. Very windy, chilly but good views all round; shame about the intrusive wind farm. Return same way.MichaelF23/05/2019
Now home to one of the most obscenely inappropriate wind 'developments'. I used to love these hills. Now I never want to see them again.Wycombe Wanderer02/01/2019

Ascended to infernal clanking & dust of the diabolical wind factory construction.ngthack30/06/2018
Weather fair.MountainMac30/09/2017
From Allanreid car park, a very pleasant walk. The large cairn seems to have transmogrified into a small cairn. Had to lie down next to the cairn to get shelter from the stiff breeze whilst drinking tea and admiring the view. Visit to Bothy and the the Suie Ruins provided interesting diversions. Bridge out and river crossing back; the water level falls very fast after rain.Gill10/09/2017
From tent at track crossing on Black Water to the east. gaiters kept me dry (just) on crossing after rain then track and heather to Cook's Cairn, just north of W to track and up good track to Corryhabbie Hill and on to Carn a'Bhodaich. Return by similar route bypassing the two intermediate summits. Good weather and pleasant route made easier by several sections of good track.dickscroop20/08/2017

With Corryhabbie in perfect sunny weather. Access from east as north route now blocked by wind farm construction... 20 tough miles on the bike: lots of climbing and deeply rutted tracks. Some nice technical downhill in parts.nix_snilloc05/05/2017

Another clear and warm day. From the north, starting at Bridgehaugh. Cycled up to 500 metre col and climbed both Corryhabbie and Cook. Tracks mostly good but degenerate higher up.Topographer5730/09/2015
MTB all the way, though bike of marginal benefit on the ascent (significant pushing over rough and wet ground). Useful for the descent, though, despite some technical sections and one over-the-handlebars crash when front wheel got stuck in a rut. 1hr45 up, 1hr down.AndyS30/08/2015
From car park at Allanreid - Cook's Cairn - Corrhabbie Hill. Not intrinsically exciting hills but vast sense of open space.benalder28415/06/2015

From Ellivreid via Kneedeep and the House of Bruar. Cairn not very exciting. Cognitive dissonance because of hill name.Martin R15/11/2014

hot day so started early with Alison Philip, what a day, great views all around, done Corrieable hill after.tallblond07/07/2013
Done as a minor expedition from Ellivreid Farm NJ268325 across Corryhabbie Hill, down the track to the col and up the easiest ground to the summit of Cook's Cairn and return the same route. Wonderful winter conditions. Almost 1000m of ascent, I'm sure there are other, easier routes for Cook's Cairn, but this was fun!sotabagger25/02/2013

Parked 3m up access track by River Livet. Pleasant walk on estate tracks via farm, over footbridge and a long arc to swing NE. Crossed a side stream to Suie. Heron. Occasional grouse, but very quiet. Last mile easy going on spasmodic track of white quartzite over very short heather. 12.50. Small neat cairn with mossy stones - long before Marilynitis.arranc22/07/2004
