To the south there's a grassy ridge which connects to a top Sron na h-Iolaire which forms the Coire na h-Iolaire that rises on the eastern shores of Loch Ericht.

Usual access is via the northern ridge from Culra Lodge which gives the easiest access to the centrally situated summit point.Alternatively access from the bealach (Bealach Breabag) on the southern side which also connects to Ben Alder via the southern top Sron Bealach Beithe The Bealach Breabag between Beinn Bheoil and a title="View the Page all about the munro Ben Alder" href="/hills/ben-alder">Ben Alder is an excellent place to view the impressive Garbh Coire Buttress which is an splendid feature of Ben Alder munro.
