Park at the Glenshee Ski Centre; there is a car park by the cafe on the west side of the road, and a much larger parking area on the east side for use in the skiing season. Begin the walk from the cafe by heading past the main ski building and then turning left across a gravelled yard to join a track climbing steeply uphill. Follow this diagonally to the right to reach a ski-lift and an octagonal cafe building (used in winter only). Continue on the main track between two ski-lifts, climbing steeply uphill. The track then bends left and crosses over a ski-run. Once past the far snow fence turn right onto a slightly narrower, eroded track climbing steeply. This eventually recrosses a ski-run; when it forks take the left branch which aims straight uphill.
The track climbs to reach the ridge just west of Carn Aosda (with a Carn Aosda signpost). Ignore the track cutting across the slope to the right and instead head straight uphill on a stony path to soon reach the summit cairn. At 917 metres in height and with the high level start this is probably the easiest of all Munros to reach. Unfortunately the extensive ski developments badly scar its slopes and detract from the experience, though the views are good.
