Ben Avon From Tomintoul
by Phil the Hill » Fri Sep 21, 2012 1:47 pm
My route (some years ago now) was to cycle in from Tomintoul, leave the bike about where you did, walk up the glen and camp overnight by the Fords of Avon, then walk back over the 3 Munros to the bike. I then biked & walked back to the Fords of Avon from Linn of Dee the following day to retrieve my tent & overnight camping gear, not bagging any more Munros as the weather had turned and the route was longer than I had appreciated. This would make a more sensible route backpacking the gear back over the tops, but I used to go to great lengths to avoid that!

I couldn't tell to be honest. In my photo the one on the left is nearest the camera so it could just be the perspective making it appear higher. When I got there I thought it was the one on the right, so climbed that. The right one is certainly easier to get up and is the one with the trig marks on it. When I was up there they looked to be pretty much the same height. Next time I'll take a long plank & a spirit level

If you are off to Assynt, I most certainly look forward to those reports
