Bynack More is the cornerstone of the High Cairngorms to the northeast, its pyramidal summit appearing to be the greatest mountain in the range when seen from much of Moray. From the summit the views are correspondingly extensive. Interest is added by the great tors of the Barns of Bynack down the east side of the ridge.
