Beinn Bhreac is amongst the easier munros to reach from the Linn of Dee.

Iain, Fiona, Yell and Myself started by walking in towards Derry lodge. about 700 meters After crossing River Lui we left the track and headed up a snowy shoulder to reach a small cairn. upon reaching that cairn we continued heading north by NE towards the cloud . When we were about 650m we changed Direction to get to the top of Meall an Lundain. The ascent was a pretty long one because od deep snow being the prodominant thing under foot. The top of Meall an Lundain is a flat featureless summit

To get to Beinn Bhreac a bearing of 330 for a kilometre down to a Gully leading down from a col. The snow was stiil deep and powdery and we were calf deep for most of this section. at the southern side of the gully a bearing of 12 was taken to ascend to the summit. A easy but long ascent was taken to the summit (over a kilometre). the approach to the summit dos get easir but the top is a diminutive top with a small cairn.

We headed for the forest coming down taking a bearing from the summit towards the north east corner. The decent to the forest was straight forward enough with no particular difficulties. Once in the trees walked down to find path and which proved easier than thought and walked out towards Derry Lodge.

At Derry Lodge The long Trudge to the car started (a 6 kilometre walk along a reasonably level track).
