Tomintoul, Climbing

The mountains of Cairngorm and Ben Macdui are well known amongst the climbing fraternity. Between them they offer up several technical routes, challenging enough to test even the most experienced and skilled climbers. One lump of rock, Hells Lum Crag, registers foreboding sounding routes with names like The Devils Alternative and Prince of Darkness. This may not be the place for the religious or anyone suffering from vertigo!

Most routes in the vicinity are found on either Ben Macdui or Cairngorm. Beinn A’ Bhuird that sits between these two giants and Ben Avon also provide several routes.

Day trippers are advised to cycle in to make the most of their visit to any of these mountains.
