Glen Avon

Glen Avon is at the foot of Ben Avon, the most easterly mountain in the famous Cairngorm range. Ben Avon itself is a very large and complex mountain, and stretches towards Inchrory and the River Gairn.  Ben Avon is distinguishable from many viewpoints by the dominating granite tors visible on the skyline of its long flat plateau. The highest point of the massif, known as Leabaidh an Dàimh Bhuide (bed of the yellow stag) is classified as both a Munro and a Marilyn.

Ridges lead in almost every direction from the broad summit of Ben Avon, allowing access from Glen Avon itself to the north, from Beinn a' Bhùird to the west and from Gleann an t-Slugain in the south. To the west of the summit lies the massive corrie, Slochd Mòr, with its rocky cliffs, and the approaches from the south and west take you close to the corrie rim.
