On a day Aviemore was the hottest place in the country I set of from road end just passed Glenmore Lodge at an unusually late one o’clock. I was lucky there one parking space was left. I cycled from here quickly passing Lochan Uaine, looking as picturesque as usual with its turquoise-green water. After a short while the path forks and I headed right the track is much rougher here but managed on the bike for a bit further. I planked the bike in the heather just passed the bridge over the Nethy burn.

Venus and Mars. almost just the path heading up the flank.

From here the path climbs gently up onto Bynack more, after another while the path which you can’t miss branch’s off to the right. It is still fairly gentle before getting steep for the last pull up.

I went through a large patch of snow and onto the crest for a while before dropping down and following a path to the summit arriving at 3.30

I spent an hour or so on top visiting the Barns of Bynack.

These huge granite tors were fun to scramble around on. After a bite to eat it was back the way I had come great day with very warm weather for the time of year.
