Route: This is a shorter, more straight-forward walk than the previous
ambitious one of Bynack More with Cairn Gorm.
It has good, fast paths and tracks throughout.
This is the easiest way of doing Bynack More. Those climbing this peak
should make sure to visit the Barns of Bynack a few hundred metres
south from the summit.
If doing Munro tops, remember to include Bynack Beg and A'Choinneach in this walk, as given in the GPS route above. This adds 3 miles to the distance and 125m of ascent. When returning from Bynack Beg, there is a useful path contouring round back to the path up Bynack More, reaching it at NJ04070737 where the steep section begins. (Another point on it is NJ03910706.) Its middle section is excellent, but the ends are a bit faint.
