Creag Rainich, via Loch a'Bhraoin
When approached from the east, Creag Rainich has rounded and fairly gentle, open slopes compared to the jagged drama of some of its neighbours. The summit, however, is a stunning viewpoint into the Fisherfield Forest.
Track along Loch a'Bhraoin; the hill itself is mostly pathless with boggy ground lower down.
None to start.
Layby on A832, south west of Braemore junction.
