This undistinguished hill hidden up a glen near Dalwhinnie offers one of the shorter and more straightforward ascents amongst the Munros. The usual approach follows some hydro-electric scheme works before an ascent up a broad dome. The position gives it great views over Badenoch, however.

Other routes and challenges
The route given above is much the shortest, although for a longer outing the Graham Creag Ruadh could be readily included.
The much longer approach from Glen Tromie has the benefit of a track starting across the river from Bhran Cottage. It climbs high up the broad ridge towards Carn Thomais.
