From parking at Silverbridge. Good tracks all the way, views to the west and a bank out cloud to the east.JasonStark17/02/2024
WIth J on the best weather day of a week based in Sutherland. Parked at Silverbridge & followed the track all the way to the summit. Wandered along towards Tom na Caillich & joined lower track to rejoin ascent route. Red deer hind at bottom of track very tame: approached us, sniffed around us & rucksacks. Probably kept as a pet. Found a pram half way up track with some juicy looking blueberries in it! Encountered the owners of pram carrying a very young, sleeping Corbett bagger a short time later. At bottom heard & then caught a fleeting glimpse of bluethroats.NotReallyABagger25/05/2023
With: hb; From car park at Silverbridge, followed good track through farm and several gates all the way to the summit. Slight variation on descent before rejoining outward track. Very tame red deer hind by farm as mentioned by others.Ian Baines17/05/2023

Not a place to linger today in the bracing wind but on the whole not too demanding getting up here alongside Tony J.Alex C26/11/2022
Great walk up from SilverbridgeAndrew Simmons23/11/2022
Solo from Silverbridge car park. Set off in the dark, with the wind and rain meaning I was in full waterproofs. Wind wasn't too bad until around 100m below the summit where it started to impact my walking but with the landrover track making for stable footing, I got up there, tapped the summit and turned around. Upped my pace for the descent with some semi-jogging/fast-walking back down. No real views, but a tick on my map at least. Total time 2h 10min.mproudfoot27/09/2022

Overcast sunny day. Ran till the steep switchbacks before the misty top cairn then ran back down. Two ebikers at cairn. Lovely wideranging long chat with the farmer on the way down.alexmaclennan16/07/2022
From Silverbridge car park up good tracks. Great views from top in all directions. On to Tom na CallichPeterD15/06/2022
Solo cycle from CP on A35. up very good track to bottom of zig-zags above trees. Took the rising traverse track to NE before switch back SW. All rideable to this point, track then became increasingly boggy and unrideable, pushed for about 1/2 km before abandoning bike in very poor visibility. Walked to summit in in heavy rain and 25m visibility. Met a couple of elderly local ladies who advised the zig-track as the better option for cycling. Maybe next time ?John Lee29/05/2022
Great day with Yeltzbagger. Diversion at the start and end because Alf terrible accident on A835 at Garve. That meant a beautiful walk by the Black Water. Met the tamest deer I have ever come across.Stevie n Tay15/05/2022
Silverbridge CP. Estate tracks. Walked but easily bikeable as far as the zig zags. Mild, sunny but cool breeze.iangalbraith25/03/2022

club weekend climbed with RegJamesSDonald01/07/2021
First day up in Dingwall with the caravan (first trip this year) and I bagged a Corbett, Little Wyvis (763m). Parking at the Silverbridge car park on the A835 north of Garve, I then headed up the estate tracks all the way to the summit. There was about 2hrs long snow shower on the way up, but it stopped when I reached the summit and the clouds partially cleared during the descent, 05:10hrs all in.chillyman801/05/2021
