Carn Ban via Alladale

Carn Ban via Strath Vaich

Other routes and challenges

An alternative start point is at Black Bridge on the A835, heading up Strath Vaich. This route is of similar length but lacks the beauty of the walk up Gleann Mor from Alladale given above. The two routes join near Deanich Lodge.

Another possibility is to approach up Strath Mulzie to Loch a' Choire Mhoir.
