Cycled from Calvine to the the small dam in 1hr 50min into a slight head wind. First 2km was pushing! Up stalkers path and into rough walking territory. Found path leading to 1 km from the foot of Beinn Bhreac. Then rough crossing. Returned the same way. Cycling back in 50mins with slight backwind. Hard day.Jhimmy12/07/2024
With John from Calvine. Parked up across from abandoned petrol station in Calvine. MTBs up the track North of Calvine across the A9 and followed that up (pushing the bikes up!) skirting the forest and eventually into Glen Bruar. About 1km past Bruar Lodge, dropped the bikes near the dam and took the excellent stalkers path up Beinn Losgarnaich. Followed intermittent path N as far as All Coire Camartaich then headed across rough ground directly for the corbett summit. Had lunch on the summit and then retraced our steps back to the bike, then back to Calvine. Times: 1h 30min ride/push in; just under 4h on foot, then 55mins ride out.mproudfoot25/05/2024
with Mike. Cycled to dam after Bruar Lodge. Intermittent path after great stalkers path.jef12/05/2024

After cycling in from Linn of Dee for an overnight camp at the ruined Geldie Lodge followed the Ealar path along the N slopes of An Sgarsoch to the Allt a' Chaorainn. Must forest regeneration work taking place along the Feshie-Geldie watershed, perhaps part of Cairngorm Connect? Ascended Carn Ealar on a rising line then out and back the 6km to Beinn Bhreac. Return to camp then bike out. A truly remote hill in a wild area. Don't think I'll be rushing backSpudGunn06/06/2023
Good track from Calvine - mostly very smooth for biking but generally uphill for 8.5mls to Bruar Lodge. Exhausted after 2hrs 15mins on the bike and dreaded the return but it was actually very easy being generally downhill. Excellent stallers path up north side Allt Beinn Loggarnaich (not as shown on map) - from cairn at NN 828 769. When this veers NNW at NN 840 782 becomes indistinct, eventually petering out altogether. Rough crossing of col area but easy ascent of hillcarole engel06/05/2023
Solo Cycle from Calvine to the dam north of Bruar Lodge, then followed the Allt Beinn Losgarnaich path to head waters of the Tarf and NE to the Beinn Bhreac summit. Return by similar route to the bike for a blast back to Calvine. This has to be one of the most remote hills in Scotland(?)John Lee14/09/2022

Biked in from Calvine to near the dam north of Bruar Lodge, then followed the Allt Beinn Losgarnaich path to Beinn Losgarnaich and on to An Sligearnach. Turned NE to the Beinn Bhreac NW & NE Tops, which is mostly heather, before bagging the main summit from its north end. Something of a slog over to Meall Tionail na Beinne Brice and Beinn Gharbh, but at least the Tarf Water was running low for an easy crossing. Then back to the bike for a cruise back to Calvine.summitter04/08/2022
3/3 After Fhidhleir. Back to tent at Red Bothy the long way â following every meander of the Tarf to its falls, then up Glen Tilt. Wind dropped and sun came out â with midges â in evening. Rounsfell14/08/2021

My first time up a Corbett in ages! Solo. Came from Linn of Dee over both Munros. It was a very long walk back. Solo.Dangerous Dave15/07/2021
Mountain bike hired in Pitlochry. Standard route out and back from Calvine leaving the bike near the dam north of Bruar Lodge. Good going except for the mile or so of lumpy, pathless, peaty ground around the watershed, thankfully very dry. 1.5 hours up on the bike, 3.5 hours walk, 1.0 hour down on the bike, 30 minutes of stops.Owen B14/07/2021
From camp in Upper GlenFeshie, solo via Lochan an-t Sluich,Leathad an Taobhain, B Bhreac and out by Slochd Beag. Sunny, warm but very cooling wind. Good views from each Corbett. Long 9hr walk inc stops (after walk in to camp). Rough going after 1st one but dry underfoot. Bhreac seems very central and very isolated.niallp12/06/2021
Solo, on a backpacking trip from Bruar to Lagganlia. Snow fell that night and the next. The compass was unreliable between Glas-leathad Feshie and the Minigaig.iansm06/11/2019

Pleasant circuit from Tarf Hotel in dry weather. Easy walking most of the way. Distinctive pointy stone in summit cairn seems to have gone since first visit in 2010.

Cycle from Calvine past Bruar Lodge then good path up from 829769 towards SW ridge. Back the same way with minor tump detour, total distance covered 40 kilometres.Topographer5714/05/2017
From Glen Feshie, parked on FC track just past end of public road. Bike to Ruigh-fionntaig easier than from Achlean and not much longer, then up the splendid path through Slochd Beag (needs more use though). Down Caochan an Duine (path seems to continue), then down the Feshie until I got fed up with dodging the oxbows. Rising traverse towards Coire Creagach and to col at 792m. First sight of Beinn Bhreac, to top, then back along the ridge to Leathad an Taobhain. The ridge is a mixture of very easy going interspersed with tedious peat hags. Down via Slochd Mor on the track.Gill03/05/2017
With M. Very remote Corbett made much easier by bike. Track easier than expected but very steep for first part. Complicated crossing of two watersheds. Last climb straightforward but bitterly cold and windy at top. M had allergic attach, fortunately recovered with tablet. Cycle back nice, apart from climb back up to road summit, very fast to finish in time for meal.douglas_easton30/04/2017
A nice round of six tops from Tarf hotel. Crossing Tarf in the morning was shin deep so managed to stay dry but after a day of thawing the recrossing just west of Tom Liath was above the knee so wet feet! - Meall Dubh-chlais:Leachan Feith Seasgachain (north and south); Sron Garbh; Meall Tionail; Tom Liath.dickscroop19/03/2017

16th Solo. From Blair Atholl, having ascended Beinn Dearg, continued down its NE face, ascend SW ridge of Beinn Bhreac. Continued N and dropped down off tops part way to River Feshie Bivi overnight, practice for NZ trip (poor choice of site for comfort, light rain overnight). During day dry, cool, initially sunny, clouds gathering afternoon, but above tops.RGibbs27/09/2014

MC JC. Had left this one for a while as it looked remote and not too interesting! Cycled from Calvine on a windy day with blustery showers. 2h cycle to Bruar Lodge on a good track. 5 hr round trip back to bikes. Wet. No view from top and very boggy on the watershed.Martin6616/07/2010
Cycle from Old Bridge of Tilt to Allt Scheicheachan bothy. Good path most of way to Beinn a'Chait. Over to Beinn Mheadhonach then cross country N to Beinn Bhreac (a little haggy at times). Return over Beinn Dearg with help from ATV tracks, then back to bike.mae20/05/2010
