Detailed route description and map

Cairn Toul and Braeriach traverse

Other routes and challenges

The complete round described above is certainly the classic route. The northeast ridge is regarded as a fine scramble, though the lengthy approach deters many. Another possible route is from Auchlean in Glen Feshie, up over the Càrn Bàn Mòr path and then across extremely exposed, remote terrain.

The epic challenge hereabouts is the ascent of the Cairngorm 4000ers, best accomplished from Speyside. Ascend Brariach via the Chlamain Gap from the Sugar Bowl car park, head round to Cairn Toul and then Corrour Bothy. Use the Allt Clach nan Taillear route onto Ben Macdui, then continue to Cairngorm and back down to the ski centre.
