Ben Avon - DESCRIPTION

Ben Avon is the most easterly Munro of the Cairngorms and for some strange reason not actually any where near Loch Avon just to confuse you. It is a massif of a mountain taking in several tops and summits but the main peak is known as Leabaidh an Dimh Bhuide. This main summit sits to the NW overlooking Garbh Corrie. The drops on the north face of this corrie are steep and craggy. The summit houses an array of tors; these are one of the Cairngorms best features. They are large rocky outcrops perched in steep piles and a well seen from surrounding Munros. The true summit is at the top of one of these and makes a brilliant end to your days climbing. They are not technically difficult at all and any scrambler will romp up them.

The summit is connected via a large set of high ridges to numerous surrounding Munros which gives a great opportunity for a bivvy out overnight taking in a number of Munros. Beinn a Bhuird is the most obvious candidate for this sitting just SW of Ben Avon.

Like the majority of the Cairngorm Munros Ben Avon is remote and will demand a long walk in from any direction. Any start point is probably as good as the other but a popular one starts at Invercauld House just NE of Braemar on a minor road. The walk in will take you up Gleann an t-Slugain to climb the col between Ben Avon and separating Munro Beinn a Bhuird. From this Munro you get a great sense of solitude and can really appreciate how vast and down right huge these Cairngorms really are!
