String trio climb Bynack More!

Route: Bynack More from Glenmore

Munros: Bynack More

Date walked: 24/02/2019

Time taken: 6.5 hours

Distance: 22.5km

Bynack More on a chilly day in February - my viola playing friends invited me down to Aviemore to join them and I couldn't resist (I'm a violinist!)

Very quiet roads on the way down from Inverness at 8am. Set off around 10 from Glenmore, and the weather was bright, dry and perfectly nice until we got near the top, when the wind suddenly felt like a thousand icicles! There was a small amount of snow, but only patches.

The top is fun - lots of rocks. We got out of the wind to eat something, and found a small black glove - if anyone lost one that day, I have it here!

It's a very easy but quite long walk - a mountain bike would be possible until almost the summit cone, as the paths are excellent. Could knock a couple of hours off if you were wanting to.

The return walk was very simple, and flew by. We stopped at the Cafe for tea and home bakes. Things taste so great when you've just climbed a mountain!

Some photos below.... in reverse order for some reason!
