Biked to Ach-mhairc Bridge - NN 888712. New Bridge is well and truly there. Also good path from there up S ridge B.Mheadhonach but beware contouring path at around 750m - continue directly up ridge and path soon becomes obvious again. Easy crossing to Munro ridge if continuing to Carn a'Chiamain - Munro. Horrible descent from there on stony track, so this with the Marilyn, improves the walk no endcarole engel01/05/2019
With George W. in six hours on a lovely summers day. Great views south.Play2End02/08/2017

12th Solo. From Blair Atholl, walk up Glen Tilt, ascend to summit via S ridge (access awkward no bridge and quite steep at bottom of ridge). Returned by Glen Tilt after passing over Carn a' Chlamain. Dry, cool, clear and sunny day with light breeze. 10hr day, deceptively tiring.RGibbs19/04/2014
From Old Bridge of Tilt via Gilbert's Bridge and the south ridge.davidpettit8403/11/2013
MMC Walk. Alex, Fraser Gold, Ron Dorn, Ian McArthur and Eunice walked from Old Glen Tilt Carpark to Forest Lodge then up good stalker path to Carn 'a Chlamain. Rest went down the ridge. I carried onto Beinn Mheadhonach and descended from there. Occasional snow and high wind, occasional calm and sun. A great day. 7 1/2 hoursalexmaclennan28/04/2013
All weathers in one day. Cycle to bridge after Marble Lodge. Summit on the munro, drop to the river where the fun began. When I was putting my camera into my rucksack to stay dry it was in the dry bag that bounced down the hillside 10m into the Allt Mhairc. Willie who was not going to do the Corbett went off in hot pursuit. I am pleased to say he managed to fish the bag out of the river, contents none the worse. Steep climb to Corbett ridge, but a nice walk along the top and down to the bridge. What an absolute gem of a find this bridge Why is it here how long has it been here it is beautiful Also a cairn & shelter built by stone at NN 878 739. Reunited with my camera phone gloves etc we contoured round the hill to the bridge, unlocked the bikes and made our way out. It was good to have the bikes made short work of the track back to car park & car. Corbett # 13 SMHC with Peter McDonald & Willie NorrisLizzieG21/04/2013
