Seana Bhraigh is one of the top three most remote Munro's in Scotland and this route is from the nearer north-eastern side from Oykel Bridge offering a full traverse over Creag An Duine. You can drive to Corriemulzie Lodge but be warned the road contains deep potholes and the car park is just a grassy area.

The summit point of Seana Bhraigh is dramatically positioned above the magnificent Loch Luchd Choire on its east and looking over the summit cairn to the north boasts views of Ben More Assynt, Eoin, Tarsuinn, Stac Polly, Cul Beag, Cul Mor, Suilven & Canisp.
