The Devils Point sits within a group of 4 Munros that really make up the heart of the Cairngorms. To the north lie the big beasts of Cairn Toul, Sgor an Lochain Uaine and of course Braeriach. These dwarf the little Devils Point but it more than makes up for it in other ways.
The Devils Point sits as a corner stone between Glen Geusachan and The Lairig Ghru acting almost like a bouncer protecting the infamous mountain pass! Its south and east faces are horrendously steep and craggy and only open for climbers. Just north of the immediate east face lies Coire Odhar. This is the normal access route for walkers which will take you out just north of the summit. Following the rim of the corrie south again will take you to the true summit. The western slopes of The Devils Point are much gentler but even more remote. The north ridge of The Devils Point will lead you to connecting Munro Cairn Toul and on to the rest of the group. This really is a superb walk and one of the musts of Scottish mountaineering.
The views from The Devils Point are as you would expect superb especially east to the Ben Macdui group and rest of the central Cairngorms.
Access is normally from the south approaching through Glen Derry from Linn of Dee where there is parking available. It is a long walk in but much of it can be cycled ( at least as far as Derry Lodge) to cut down on the walk in time.
