Did it on bike from Glen Feshie. Mint trip, ascent was hard going but descent was amazing! well worth it, wouldnt have enjoyed walking these hills. So bike was a great answer to that!

Alternative ascent is possible heading up the very well-maintained path beside the Allt Fhearnagan from Auchlean farm (at the road end) to just below the summit of Carn Ban Mor - this takes you up over the 1000m contour on easy paths. From there simply head North-East for the cliffs and follow them to the summit. this made for easy navigation in very thick, low cloud.

The track up via the Allt Ruadh has recently been renovated to a very high standard and is as good as an escalator up to the 600m contour line where it dies out and a path through the heather continues onwards onto the higher slopes.

Fantastic views to the distant hills of the north-west and down to Ben Nevis - worth saving for a crisp winters day

I agree with Neil, the traverse from Sgor Gaoith, over the many tops to Geal-Charn is well worth the extra effort. The descent (west) from Geal-Charn is pathless, initially very bouldery, then deep heather, until you reach the forest area.

A fine outing on a sunny autumn dry day over a pleasant heather clad undulating mountain. The view from the summit well worth the walk-A contrast-Harsh and Cullin like plunging down to the white topped Loch below. The scree sloped mountain rearing up opposite made a fine spot for a rest and cuppa. Scenery some of the best be in the world

Must be a serious contender for finest peak in the 'Gorms, especially in winter. A traverse of Sgor Gaoith and her Tops - Sgoran Dubh Mor, Meall Buidhe and Geal-Charn also makes for a fine outing and is well worth considering.
