Beinn a' Bhuird

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Beinn a'Bhuird is the eleventh highest mountain in Britain, a vast high plateau in the eastern Cairngorms. The shortest approach is up Glen Quoich and follows a the former line of a bulldozed track - now restored by the NTS - high onto the mountain. Even this route is a long walk.

Terrain

Good tracks for the approach to the stony plateau. The summit area can be difficult to navigate and is extremely exposed in bad weather. There is one river crossing which would be impossible in spate and requires a wade at most times.

Public Transport

No public transport
