Followed new track from Melgarve power station, cut off early but followed the track back which goes to almost 800m from the summit, probably best done on a bike.scoob22/12/2018

From Garva Bridge. Started to rain as soon as I entered the car park - doh. But then rain held off until I reached the summit. Straight up Leathad Gaothach south face. Trig point and now a monitoring machine on top.Jhimmy22/04/2018
From Garva Bridge. Bridge 1km to north is good, then up onto SE ridge and over 844m Sim. Descent due south. A new track to the west, leading up to a new wind farm to the north would have made a good cycle in if I had known about it in time.Topographer5719/04/2018
A circuit of Meall na h-Aisre and Gairbeinn on a stunning spring day, starting from Garva Bridge and the bike stashed at Melgarve for a quick return (I'm allergic to walking on tarmac). MnhA is unremarkable, but the peat bogs connecting it to Gairbeinn are reminiscent of Kinder Scout on anabolic steroids. Following the ruined fence provides a good guide to the easiest going. Dry weather is a great help; you can float effortlessly across the peat. The highlight is being able to walk the full length of the splendid, mossy summit ridge of Gairbeinn. Bag these hills now before the view is spoiled by the huge windfarm currently under construction.Gill01/05/2017

Solo. From Garva Bridge walked on the old military road which goes over Corrieyairack Pass. At NN420986 ascended to Corrieyairack Hill. Then over Geal Charn, Gairbein, points 870m, 786m, 758m, Meall na h-Aisre. The descent was beside Allt Coire Iain Oig to reach Garva Bridge. Weather good.
