At the north-eastern edge of the Cairngorms, Bynack More is the highest point on a plateau overlooking the vast expanse of heather-clad Strath Nethy moorland and its caledonian forests. Bynack More is an interesting mountain, modest in height compared to other Cairngorm Munros and with a rocky summit and the weird volcanic tors that make the Barns of Bynack. There are two other summits on the plateau, Bynack Beg (Byanack More's subsiduary Munro Top) and A'Choinnich (which used to be a Munro in its own right).

To reach Bynack More in clear summer conditions is a doddle following well-constructed paths most of the way. Winter conditions create a much more challenging experience !
