The circuit from the Golf course. What an incredibly easy walk! But the track is soooo ugly. What a weird thing to do to a lovely mountain.Gill29/12/2016

Second top after Beinn Bhreac on a long day including 1 Corbett, 6 Corbett tps and two Graham tops going out as far as Carn Icean Duibh from Kingussie Golf Club. On return leg stepped knee deep into a bog with both legs - some difficulty pulling myself out - at bealach before Carn Sgulain. Bridge down near lodge at start, had to exit though lodge grounds and their bridge.dickscroop08/10/2014

8th – Solo. From Newtonmore, headed up track alongside Allt na Beinne, cut across ground in NW direction to join track up to summit of Carn an Fhreiceadain. Returned passed Loch Gynack. Original plan was the Munro Geal Carn, but missed the school bus to Laggan. Light rain, but cloudy below the Corbett.RGibbs13/11/2012
On the Friday before the reunion dinner. Cold winds and several inches of snow on top but a great day on my own.Meagaidh01/11/2012
Very easy walk from Kingussie on hill roads which could be followed all the way. Up via Allt Mor, back via Beinn Bhreac (843 m). Enjoyable. Sunny day, good viewspwheeler25/06/2012
Solo. From Ardvonne car park, Kingussie. To Pitmain Lodge and up track on SW side of Allt Mòr. Found a track, not marked on my OS 1:50,000 map, that goes to summit of Carn an Fhreiceadain and beyond. From Carn an Fhreiceadain continued NE to minor top with a cairn and then SE to reach summit of Beinn Bhreac. Track came to an end. Came across a stone man and continued to point 701m. There is a rough track coming in from right. Highest point is knoll east of track. Continued to Cairn Dulnan.pwbellarby04/06/2012

solo, shorts and t shirt, between trains, superb views. up track to R, down by other trackniallp26/05/2012
Parked in Kingussie & followed the easterly track up the hillside with Shaky. Over Beinn Bhreac first & then round to the summit which is a belter of a viewpoint. If you can ignore the tracks that have been bulldozed all over every hill & glen in sight, that is. I realise that it makes the estate activities easier but really... Encountered a shooting party comes up the westerly track on our way down who gave us a cheery wave. Never seen quite so much deer poo on a hill as this one.NotReallyABagger12/10/2011

Sunny, windy, lot of painful spindrift, light snow cover, good views.iangalbraith04/02/1996
Cairngorm Club weekend meet based at Newtonmore. Solo. I went to Kingussie and walked past the golf course and on to the tarmac track leading to Pitmain Lodge. I continued up track beyond the lodge with much soft snow and high wind. Shortly before track crosses Allt Mòr, crossed bridge over minor burn to find wall of snow 40 foot high ahead, topped by impressive cornice. Track turns sharply right at this point and was completely buried. Reached summit of Carn an Fhreiceadain. I descended to bothy south on return route, which mostly followed outward route. Beautiful blue skies in morning, clouding over later.pwbellarby19/03/1994
