Cycle from Calvine past Bruar Lodge then good path up from 829769 towards SW ridge. Back the same way with minor tump detour, total distance covered 40 kilometres.Topographer5714/05/2017
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, then 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.Gill03/05/2017
With M. Very remote Corbett made much easier by bike. Track easier than expected but very steep for first part. Complicated crossing of two watersheds. Last climb straightforward but bitterly cold and windy at top. M had allergic attach, fortunately recovered with tablet. Cycle back nice, apart from climb back up to road summit, very fast to finish in time for meal.douglas_easton30/04/2017
A nice round of six tops from Tarf hotel. Crossing Tarf in the morning was shin deep so managed to stay dry but after a day of thawing the recrossing just west of Tom Liath was above the knee so wet feet! - Meall Dubh-chlais:Leachan Feith Seasgachain (north and south); Sron Garbh; Meall Tionail; Tom Liath.dickscroop19/03/2017

MC JC. Had left this one for a while as it looked remote and not too interesting! Cycled from Calvine on a windy day with blustery showers. 2h cycle to Bruar Lodge on a good track. 5 hr round trip back to bikes. Wet. No view from top and very boggy on the watershed.Martin6616/07/2010

From Calvine. Through a sewage pipe under the new A9! 3 miles uphill on bike and down and to Lodge and left bike. On stalkers' path by many waterfalls to end of track and a 2 mile plod over heather to view of RP across a complex double col. Another long mile down to cross infant Bruar Water going W and S and then the infant Tarf going E. A final mile to top at 14.27. At car 25m - 9 hrs.arranc27/05/1997
On a 2 and a half day trek from Blair Atholl- Beinn Dearg- Beinn Bhreac- Carn an Fhidhleir- An Sgarsoch- Tarf Bothy- Blair Atholl. This day had all the summits. A cut head on Beinn Dearg introduced doubts about the expedition but by the time I got onto the incredibly remote Beinn Bhreac I felt fine- just as well really. Fine day, any early cloud lifting and breaking off the summits.pwheeler21/05/1995
Solo. From Achlean in Glen Feshie. Round of four Corbetts and a few other tops. There was good weather throughout with some mist. Walked south and crossed the bridge to the other side of River Feshie. At ruin left track and walked on path through Slochd Beag to bothy. Continued with a more or less straight line to point 845m, then Beinn Bhreac. Continued to Leathad an Taobhain, Meallach Mhr and Carn Dearg Mr.pwbellarby20/05/1995
