Other routes and challenges

The direct ascent of the Stuic is perhaps the finest route of ascent if aiming for Càrn a' Choire Bhòidheach alone. The foot of the route is a little awkward of access; park at Keiloch and follow the track from the Bridge of Dee up to the Feindallacher Burn. There is a then a pathless traverse across moorland to reach Loch nan Eun and the start of the scramble.

An alternative ascent is to begin from Auchallater in Glen Clunie, heading up towards Loch Callater and then following the old pony path that skirts round Càrn an t-Sagairt Mòr.
