Beinn Bhrotain - DESCRIPTION

Beinn Bhrotain is the most southern of the Cairngorms and is a big Munro! Its most impressive feature is the extremely steep northern slopes that drop to Glen Geusachan, a deep chasm separating Beinn Bhrotain from The Devils Point and the rest of the Braeriach group. Beinn Bhrotain is connected to neighbouring Munro Monadh Mor by its western ridge that circles round Coire Cath nam Fionn at the head of Glen Geusachan. The summit is rather rounded and when seen from the south lacks in distinctive features, however as mentioned all the best bits are hidden round the back with its huge craggy north face. The slopes to the south and west are much less intimidating and therefore form the usual route of ascent.

This is another remote Munro and will involve a long walk in and out. A good starting place is from Linn of Dee to the SE, from here there are good land rover tracks that can be cycled as far as White Bridge. From here climb Beinn Bhrotain's SE ridge via subsidiary peak Carn Cloich-mhuilinn.

Monadh Mor is easily added to you route by following round the rim of the northern corrie but be wary of the sharp drops to the north of Beinn Bhrotain and east as you approach the summit of Monadh Mor.

Another big adventure to be had in the Cairngorms here with fantastic panoramic views throughout, especially looking north to the Braeriach group. From here you can appreciate the vast size of these Cairngorm Munros.
