From Sherramore. Watched two deer cross the Spey as I crossed the bridge. By tracks great and small through the woodland to Meall and Domhnaich, then enjoyably along the ridge to Beinn Sgiath (the summit cairn is surprisingly difficult to find as broad, diverging slopes conceal it until quite close) and Geal Charn. An ATV track makes for a quick return to Sherramore.Nick Down104/08/2018
From Garva Bridge (NN 52218 94730). Followed path alongside Feith Talagain then alongside Allt Coire nan Dearcag for a short distance before heading up the broad ridge to the summit plateau. Path indistinct at times.david23020110/07/2018

43 - From Garva bridge. Struggled with this one. Very boggy pretty much all the way, and path non-existent in places. New utility company track is quite an eyesore to the West too.huwthomas08/08/2017
