Carn Chuinneag with its distinctive twin summits sits isolated in a remote part of Easter Ross west of Bonar Bridge. There are fine estate tracks and stalkers paths to ease access to this little hill, from where fine views can be had from the summit trig point.

The most direct and easiest route to Carn Chuinneag is from Glencalvie Lodge at the end of Strathcarron, from where a fine estate track travels the length of the glen to the foot of the hill. Old stalkers paths lead close to Carn Chuinneag's flat top and twin peaks.
