Ben Avon & neighbours

Guided bike-hiking days in the eastern Cairngorms

North of Braemar, ancient pine forests full of wildlife hide below vast plateaus. On higher ground, ptarmigan and hare bound around and the unusual volcanic tors on Ben Avon entertain inquisitive folk. We're biking into the heart of this area, from where we'll hike up to the high peaks above this land.
