Beinn a'Chaorainn and Beinn Bhreac

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This pair of Munros lies between the Beinn a'Bhùird and Ben Avon massifs and the main mass of the High Cairngorms. Often overlooked, they are separated by the sprawling Moine Bhealaidh, a featureless plateau, but the pinewoods of Glen Derry provides a fine approach and the views are good.


Excellent approach paths - many cycle as far as Derry Lodge. Some boggier ground on the hill with difficult navigation if visibility is poor. The crossing of the Glas Allt Mòr could be a problem in wet weather.

Public Transport

Bus from Braemar (Jul-Sep only).


Linn of Dee car park (charge). Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
