Beinn Mheadhoin is a fantastic Munro. Besides having a fantastic topography the hill has a ton of superb little novelty factors that go along with it! Beinn Mheadhoin is a remote Munro overlooking the south east side of Loch Avon. It is a rounded summit with a selection of torrs on the summit. These are large slabs of rock that are peculiarly placed on the summit creating an array of rocky outcrops. These make for a fantastic end to your climb. They are not technically difficult but of course care must be taken. Beinn Mheadhoin is well seen from all directions especially from Glen Derry where the southern faces are a formidable looking site.
It is tricky to get to with a long walk in from any direction as it is completely encased by surrounding Munros. Many start from Linn of Dee in the south with a long walk in along Glen Derry. Other routes include coming in from the north taking in Cairngorm first. The choice of routes really is endless for this one. If going from Linn of Dee a stop by Shelter Stone is a must , can you imagine staying overnight in here?
