This route covers two munros which lie on the eastern end of the Cairngorm massif. It's a long tough route taking in uncompromising landscape making an excellent circuit. The summit tor on Ben Avon must be climbed in order to "bag" the mountain, though it is an easy scramble.

Ben Avon and Beinn a' Bhuird are amongst the least visited of the Cairngorms and give fantastic views of North East Scotland. The huge plateau of Beinn a' Bhuird is really appreciated on a clear day from Ben Avon's southern flanks.
