During a windy week in Tomintoul. Started from road next to the Reindeer Centre, along to Glenmore Lodge & followed tracks round to the site of Bynack Stable. Continued up broad ridge where Smithy headed up Bynack More & then over the undulations to a point about 300m short of Lochan a Bhainne. Headed straight up to great view from interesting summit block. Returned the same way pausing at Bynack Stable to dunk my feet in the river.

Day trip from Stonehaven. Solo. After ascending Meall a' Bhuachaille descended the eastern slopes to reach Ryvoan Bothy. I used path (traces in part) to cross to track leading to Bynack Stable. Continued on Lairig an Laoigh path to where it crosses Glasath. It had become cold with a strong wind blowing from S. It was misty on the tops now, and so it remained for the rest of the day. There was some light rain. I headed up to the summit of Creag Mhòr. The summit is a small tor no cairn. Continued to A' Chòinneach and Bynack More.pwbellarby01/10/1994
