Other routes and challenges
The route given above is by far the most popular. A longer approach is from Benrinnes Distillery to the north. From here a track climbs high up Baby's Hill - from where it is possible to continue to the summit, with views of some of Ben Rinnes' other tors along the way.
Another track leads up to the plateau from the south side, climbing up by forestry plantations from a start higher up Glen Rinnes.
