Other routes and challenges
A shorter alternative walk 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 en route for Lochnagar.
The finest route for scramblers would be via the Stuic, aiming for Càrn a' Choire Bhòidheach first. 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. After visiting Càrn a' Choire Bhòidheach, continue to Càrn an t-Sagairt Mòr and down a stalkers' path before another pathless section to return to the Feindallacher Burn.
