A long walk in from Glen Feshie. Great view of the Cairngorm giants to the Northeast from the col between Beinn Bhrotan & Monadh Mor.

A long day out from Linn of Dee Car Park. Walked via Derry Lodge, Glen Luibeg, Corrour Bothy, Devil's Point, Cairn Toul, The Angel's Peak, Monadh Mor to get to Beinn Bhrotain then back over Carn Cloich-mhuilinn and White Bridge. Feet very tired at end especially along stony track. Good weather all day.

Munro no.122. Went from here on to Monadh Mor. En-route climbed over the former munro of Carn Cloich-mhuilinn. The view from the trig was extensive on what was a very clear day. Ben Cruachan could be spotted way to the south-west.

Cylindrical, vgc, no cap or plug - just 2 carnations! In shelter cairn. Fine remote hill, typical Cairngorm stony summit. Visited during the Rigby Round, covering 18 Munros & 75 miles, completed in just under 23 hours, in excellent weather.

Condition taken from photo. It also looks like a circular one. Near here was my lowest point - so far - on the hills. Cycled from Linn of Dee to NN998898, left bikes and walked up track to and then along Glen Geusachan. Decided to go straight up to Monadh Mor; I just ran out completely of energy. Contoured South as best I could to the col and up Bheinn Bhrotain so still have Monadh Mor to do.

first day and group hire bikes from Braemar, cycle from Linn of Dee 6 miles to White bridge and north to slopes under Beinn Bhrotain. Bumpy bike ride and haven't put on thermals and get pretty cold legs. Unexcercised lack of fitness in my muscles means they are spasming into cramp within 15 minutes of starting walking up the hill. Mega frustration. Have to let the others go on without me and slowly with many stops to furiously massage my aching muscles I eventually get to the summit of Beinn Bhrotain for a second time since a much fitter nearly 21 year old did it in 1973.

Long solo walk in from Linn of Dee to bag this munro and its neighbour Monadh Mor. Scared myself a bit by showing early signs of exposure at Loch nan Stuirteag just before entering the clouds. Had to stop for a bit and take some emergency measures before carrying on. A long, long day with new boots into the bargain. Not one to forget in a hurry!

From Achlean via the Moine Mhor and Tom Dubh. After a hot sunny day yesterday the weather suddenly went very wet and cold, and the clag came down. The SE Top had to be left and was done three weeks later from the Geldie Lodge side.

Beinn Bhrotain Not much to see.
