This is a very fine remote mountain, an outlier of the Beinn Dearg group several kilometres north-east of Beinn Dearg itself and a long way from the nearest point of access on any public road. The most impressive feature of Seana Bhraigh is the great north-facing Luchd Choire and the nearby Coire Mor at the head of the Corriemulzie River. The summit is a vast wide ridge, almost plateau-like in its extent, which gives the mountain a Cairngorm-like appearance. Two routes to Seana Bhraigh are possible, both very long. From the east a private road goes from Oykel Bridge to Corriemulzie Lodge and it is possible to cycle along this road to the lodge and several kilometres further towards the mountain. Continue up the track beside the Corriemulzie River to Loch a' Choire Mhoir and climb Seana Bhraigh either by the broad ridge on the west side of Luchd Choire or by the narrow rocky ridge on the east side. The latter is a splendid route, but steep and exposed in places. The alternative route is from Inverlael at the head of Loch Broom, starting up Gleann na Sguaib for 2½ kilometres and continuing due east along a path which leads for 7 kilometres towards Seana Bhraigh. Beyond its end descend to the col at Loch a' Chadha Dheirg and climb north to the broad summit ridge of Seana Bhraigh.
