From Glen Feshie, parked on FC track just past end of public road. Bike to Ruigh-fionntaig, easier than from Achlean and not much longer. To Beinn Bhreac first, up the splendid path through Slochd Beag (needs more use though). Down Caochan an Duine (path seems to continue), then down the Feshie until I got fed up with dodging the oxbows. Rising traverse towards Coire Creagach and to col at 792m. First sight of Beinn Bhreac, to top, then back along the ridge to Leathad an Taobhain. The ridge is a mixture of very easy going interspersed with tedious peat hags. Down via Slochd Mor on the track; glad I didn't have to walk the track twice.Gill03/05/2017

Long but fairly easy walk from near Achlean. Cylindrical trig on top. Wonder if that height of 912m is accurate?! Good weather, though a bit warm and humid low down.Aye Jimmy29/08/1998
