With two friends. From road end near Glenmore Lodge. Walked along Lairig an Laoigh track and then path that branches off to the summit of Bynack More. Much faster than time in SMT guide 'The Munros' as much work has been done in recent times in improving the path. Continued to Bynach Beg and down to Strath Nethy. Used path on east side of river. At first the path was good but it soon deteriorated and it was difficult to keep out of the water and mud.pwbellarby24/09/2014
