This route covers the hidden hill Beinn Mheadhoin that lies in the heart of The Cairngorms. This route from Glen Derry is longer than the northern approach and requires a bit of endurance but is easy as there's less ascent / descent. A bicycle can be used on the track to shorten the time taken or wild camp at Derry Lodge.

The summit is naturally marked with a large granite sumit which requires a short easy scramble to its top.
