Climbed from the A941 starting 1 km south east of the quarry. Easy walk up heathery slopesSimon Winton06/01/2020

From Millbuies with a bit of bushwacking to get out of trees onto moordaviemore27/10/2018
Followed same route as Nordicstar et al. Straight forward. No issues.assynt_bob09/06/2018
Fairly direct route from Millbuies, with track most of the way, rough descent SE via Findlay's Seat, which is a confusing area.Chris Peart19/05/2018
via MoniemouiesDave McG07/02/2018
The voie normale from Monimouies, with the track covered in snow ice. Cute trig point wearing a hat. The track is a bit of a mess, and it's all a bit scruffy. Not as interesting as other walks around here, though views are good.Gill30/12/2017
On route to lossiemouth, up from moniemouies as others have said. good call, other track does not exist.hils11/06/2017
Parked in a lay-by just before the junction for Teindland Mains and then walked to the ruin of Moniemouie along the track and then continued on the service track to the radio antenna to the trig and then to the actual summit a bit further SE. With Chris and BenPeterb16/05/2017

1/5 Marilyn today. Easy walk up track from Moniemouies. Sunny fine viewsN.Morters05/05/2017
From junction of track & B-road by Alstonside, to the NE, where there's good parking for large vehicles at NJ 29390 57379. Route and write-up at:

Weather fair.MountainMac17/11/2016
From Logieburn. As others have said this was a mistake as path overgrown with gorse. Better to follow the Moniemouies advice below.Lionel Bidwell04/11/2016
Climbed from Logieburn. Track shown does not exist resulting in 500m of heather bashing - no big deal especially if you are climbing in winter. Try climbing via Moniemouies as suggested by others if you prefer track.raffemeister15/09/2016
Self, Peter and dog. Easy ascent, fine view of Ben Rinnes (which was my last Corbett 2 years ago)Invicta1416/08/2016
Straightforward, good track all the way.hillsman16/05/2016
From Logieburn - horrible - see pwbellarby.jimbloomer22/04/2016
With Jenx at end of day. As Big J and Viewfinder. Straightforward except for the ice on track and recent washout. Trig is the best high spot with Geocache, visited the lump a few yards away for the record.nordicstar17/01/2016
From road end at Moniemouies. Very icy. 5th hill today and not the best!jenx17/01/2016
Ascended via Moniemouies on a good track. A bit cloudy but still good views all round. Was bagging the trig. With CJW.BigJ19/10/2015
From end of public road at 276563 via deserted steading at Moniemouies. Contrary to the 50k map, this track leads all the way to the summit, which tracks shown from other directions do not.Topographer5728/09/2015
from end of road teindland track to the summit.robertphillips18/05/2015
Parked at 235502 and followed tracks and then hard going over rough moor to mast. NE side would be betterThearlaichdubh03/05/2015
Here for the trigpoint. 'Findlays Seat' TP:UK log: Took totally the wrong route to this, the zig zag path from Logieburn disappears into thick gorse, impassible, had to head straight up the heather, hard going, suggest you find the route with the big track up to the mast. Another square one bagged.thejackrustles31/12/2014
Bit annoying this one! Parked just before Logieburn and up track which disappeared (wrong again OS!) so forced to plod up northern slopes which were quite hard going - should've gone up mast track via Moniemouies.AndrewFinnimore19/09/2014
It started off easy enough, parked right at the end of the road where this path started, but it soon became apparent that the path was really overgrown with gorse, so it was a heather bash for quite a long time. Better is the start off from the track earlier on the road, it is slightly longer, but much easier. track all the way to the top. Trig had a metal top.tallblond06/06/2014
windy day but good viewsNozzer02/02/2014
Solo walk, from Teindland side.amswanston10/11/2013
Solo. From end of public road near Logieburn farm, Teidland. My map showed only one track to the summit of Brown Muir so I attempted to follow it. It went SW towards a farm building called Humbeck. Just short of Humbreck there is a track junction with the track to Brown Muir turning sharp left. However, I found the track towards Brown Muir full of gorse and disused to such an extent that I could not follow the track. Walked on adjacent field until deciding to strike up the hillside. Going was tough with much thick heather. Eventually came to wide gravel track that took me to the summit cairn. OS 1:50,000 suggests the highest point is slightly SE of trig point and only 1m higher. Didn't go there. Tried a different descent route but this was even worse than the ascent. Weather dry and quite warm.pwbellarby30/06/2013
Rough going away from the service road.bolton14/02/2013
With dad for SOTA activation.adamkw25/07/2012
Simple up and down from Teindland side of hill, ample parking at NJ275564, near a minor road/track junction. Walk up past Moniemouies and follow track to summit with mast. Dog friendly.sotabagger03/02/2012
Took the fairly direct line up from Fogwatt. Tracks via Humbreck not recommendable - the tranmitter access track actually continues down past the delapidated Moniemouies farm (which provided shelter from the snow shower to sort out some bearings).Smudge29/12/2011
Dry, sunny, mild, good views.iangalbraith21/03/2010
Revisit. TP large, squat c. 600 x 600mm with sides vertical. Big pointed cast iron cover lying broken on the ground. Immediately SE of mast, at end of track. #12 of 24 Marilyns in 24h with Brent Lynam in the driving seatRHW24/02/2007
From the Millbuies country park by tortuous route that could, possibly, be avoided on new paths to N.Eddie03/09/2004
On track through beasts, which got very wet, covered in gorse and impossible to get through. Uphill in gully in long grass and onto open moor over heather to another track and to top at 10.15. Heavy iron cover on top of trig.arranc25/07/2004
