Pretty much same way as most others - along track from hard standing near road end to fence and followed that until veered over to summit. Has hardly rained for a month so the track was dry and even the hill was fine - the normally wet bits were damp and the normally damp bits were dry. Clear but very hazy and murky so views limited though must be fine on a good day.StueyB13/05/2024
As others, P before bridge at Bragleenbeg. Up track to cross burn at 92224-19115 & up beside fence. Headed to summit from 92859-19534. On descent, SW after lochans to join fence at 92637-19317. Continued to Carn Deargduchally22/04/2024
The bridge at NM 907 204 was indeed taken down - away in Storm Babett. Nice area of hard stamding opposite here to tuck in vehicle. Keeping it out of the way for estate - agriculture. Spoke to farmer the day before who was puzzled why anyone would want to walk to B Chapull. Thought an approach from Fineglas in south would be a bit easier. Told me the ground was v wet in places. He was correct. Followed old drovers route until i met the boundary march fence between two estates - farms around NM 920 190. Note you will need to cross three stream s to get to this point. I was then lured by a soggy atv . Much stopping to check location …Maol Buidhe and then across dead WET ground to plod up slope of B Chapull. Mist had come in by then. Opted to follow a fence on way back until around NM 929 195. Long legs across the fence ….and picked my way in around downwards to hit track NM 914 196. The sheep on Oitby must have webbed feet !! Soaking ground. Two red grouse ( they also must have webbed VerySlowPlodder09/11/2023

More or less jonglew's route. Grey day, cloud down to about 600m, but still some good views.ger18/07/2021
From the end of Scammadale parking area before the bridge. Track and fence route, very dry underfoot following recent fine weather. Sunshine, fine view and cool breeze.N.Morters17/04/2021
From Bragleenbeg, good parking 300m before the bridge. Track to NM 9198 1917 whence veered off up the hill picking up and following fence to NM 9275 1944 then direct line to hill top. Off to N Top next on a round of 8 hills.jonglew23/08/2019
As per Gill, more or less. Potentially boggy in places, but pretty dry today.PGCE02/08/2019
6th top of 15 on a 28.8km circular from the A816 at Blaran, climbing A' Chruach, Cruach Coire Lorn, Carn Dearg, Cnoc Raibeirt and Cnoc nan Gobhar continuing NE to descend steeply to the Allt Braglenmore and after re-filling my water bottles, climbing steeply up over the shoulder of Maol Buidhe to head Ene to arrive at the Trig pillar. A good place for a rest. I recorded 514m @ NM 93741 19595. I continued to the North top afterwards...Dazingdale15/05/2019
2 of 4: From Bragleenmore.ChrisR11/06/2018
A fine walk from Bragleenbeg, parked on the hardstanding before the bridge. Up the ATV track just before the plantation, fine views all round, especially the lovely Loch Scammadale. The track takes you to the fence, followed with deviations around bumps and bogs to a reach a cross fence, turn left and it takes you up the hill, branching off right to the summit, a fine view point.Gill16/05/2018
Via Fineglen - Not as wet as others have said. above fineglen short greass - overall a straightforward maryliniainwalton18/12/2017
Recorded route and write-up at:
From Bragleenmore - not too wet.Chris Peart14/04/2017
From Bragleen, up the dilapidated and poorly drained path SE as far as 920192, then up the steep hillside. Higher up, a fence leads up to the summit area. I too recommend waterproof footwear.Topographer5702/10/2016
Zig zag track up above small forested area and up along left bank of stream. Then across flatter boggy ground following vehicle tracks and fence line. Broke away from fence to trig.jenx04/01/2016
With Jenx, parked at road end by Bragleenmore. Follow Scots ROW track through a short distance then take newish ATV track up the hill from GR913198 that goes above the conifer plantation to a gate. Fainter ATV tracks lead easily up to 350m, then up to summit ridge, were after the fence line can be followed close to the trigged top. Bagged the 514m top too as it looked higher from some angles. Rapidly back down a very wet route. Wellies recommended!nordicstar04/01/2016

Walked in from Loch Scammadale, descending to climb Carn Dearg.JohnW10/06/2008
Parked at west end of Loch Scammadale. On access track past several cottages then on grass track through bracken above stream to right. Path led over side stream in a ravine and to a gate in cross wire fence. Uphill on tussock to cross a side stream in a deep gulley. Wire fence gave guidance to top of moor. View of RP 1 mile away over 3 or 4 bumps and swampy areas to final grassy clamber to dome top at 13.25.arranc04/10/2005
From Loch Scammadale where nice shepherd directed the way while pair of collies held a flock steady.Eddie19/11/2003
Date is first visit. Notes from later...fine hill, esp W ridge, challenging in gale/blizzard. Bragleenmore (park across br 910201), good tk then grassy slopes, beware gorge below 922199 RHW31/12/2000
