Beinn Bhreac, from Calvine
Beinn Bhreac is a rolling, heather-covered hill guarded by peat bogs and featureless moorland, hidden away in the remotest corner of the Atholl hills. Reaching it from any direction is something of an epic; the easiest route is that described here - the long approach up Glen Bruar can be greatly aided by the use of a mountain bike.
Good track (suitable for MTB) to beyond Bruar Lodge, then stalkers path up into the hills. Pathless, featureless terrain with peat hags to approach the hill itself.
Bus to Calvine from Blair Atholl and Pitlochry.
