The nearest road to Ben Vuirich is the A924 running through Glen Brerachan, from where a track aims northwards towards the hill. Access from Blair Atholl is further, but on better tracks that reach closer to the slopes of the hill.

Starting from above Blair Atholl, fine estate tracks and recently upgraded paths make for easy access to the base of Ben Vuirich - and a bike can be used for around 8km on the journey in. On the hill itself there are some ATV tracks that can be found, paths are otherwise few and very faint.
