Bynack More and Bynack Beg

Guided hillwalking day in the Cairngorms

Bynack More is an intriguing Munro in the Cairngorms with a rocky summit and weird volcanic tors. At the eastern boundary of the main Cairngorn massif, this mountain sits detached and as such gives splendid views over the other Cairngorm mountains. We'll be hiking over this mountain, perhaps taking in another peak or two while spotting the wildlife - reindeer are often found roaming the higher ground and depending on the season, snow-bunting and dotterel can be seen on the crests and plateaux.
