Bynack More is the most northern of the Cairngorms and sits quite isolated separated from its nearest neighbours be deep glens and lochs. The summit is rounded but appears from the north at Abernethy Forest as a pointed summit. Bynack More has two prominent ridges running north and south. The north ridge leads down gentle slopes to Strath Nethy where there are easy access routes from Glenmore Lodge. This is the normal route of ascent. The south ridge eventually drops to Glen Avon but branches off SW to join the saddle which connects to Cairn Gorm via its east face. To the west of the summit a small ridge also leads to subsidiary peak Bynack Beag.

Similar to other Munros in the Cairngorms Bynack More boasts tors on its summit. These are large rocky outcrops of about 6m in height. They are known as the Bynack Barns and make a great little scramble for all (not difficult). They are located south of the actual summit on the south ridge.

There are fantastic views to be had from Bynack More particularly of Cairn Gorm to the south west and of Loch Avon to the south. Bynack More is one of the more accessible Cairngorm Munros but will still involve a fairly lengthy walk in.
