Detailed route description and map

Beinn Bhrotain and Monadh Mòr from Glen Feshie

Other routes and challenges

The obvious alternative to the route given above is to start from the Linn of Dee to White Bridge and then make the ascent from Glen Dee. This route could include Càrn Clioch-mhuillin, which was originally a Munro and was intended by Sir Hugh to be his final ascent. If including Monadh Mòr then the descent could be made down the boggy Glen Geusachan.

The standard ascents are epic enough for most. However, from Monadh Mòr you could head up the SW ridge of Sgòr an Lochan Uaine to link with that range.
