Attractions Near Beinn Bhrotain

The Devil's Point
The Devil's Point3.55km from Beinn Bhrotain

The Devil's Point is a mountain in the Cairngorms of Scotland, lying to the west of the Lairig Ghru pass. The Gaelic name means "Penis of the Demon". The English name is a result of a visit to the area by Queen Victoria. She asked her local ghillie, John Brown, to translate the name; to avoid embarrassment he gave a euphemistic answer.

Càrn a' Mhàim
Càrn a' Mhàim4.94km from Beinn Bhrotain

Càrn a' Mhàim is a Scottish mountain situated in the inner part of the Cairngorms range, some 15 kilometres west of Braemar in the county of Aberdeenshire. The mountain is located on one of the two long ridges which radiate south from Ben Macdhui; it reaches a height of 1037 metres and along with Macdhui and Derry Cairngorm forms the central body of the Cairngorms that lie between the two major passes of the Lairig Ghru and the Lairig an Laoigh.

Cairn Toul
Cairn Toul5.01km from Beinn Bhrotain

Cairn Toul is the fourth highest mountain in Scotland, The United Kingdom, and The British Isles, after Ben Nevis, Ben Macdui and Braeriach. The summit elevation is 1,291 metres AMSL. It is the second highest point in the western massif of the Cairngorms, linked by a bealach at about 1125 m above sea level to Braeriach.

Sgòr an Lochain Uaine
Sgòr an Lochain Uaine5.3km from Beinn Bhrotain

Sgor an Lochain Uaine, also known as "The Angel's Peak", is a striking summit, particularly when viewed from the Cairngorm-Macdui plateau. The Northeast ridge offers the climber an easy, but spectacular way directly to the summit. However, the Northeast face offers the skier a memorable experience descending towards Lochan Uaine. The Northwest face has been skied as well, but the line is unclear at this point.

Ben Macdui
Ben Macdui7.5km from Beinn Bhrotain

Ben Macdui is the second highest mountain in Scotland after Ben Nevis, and the highest in the Cairngorm Mountains and the wider Cairngorms National Park. The summit elevation is 1,309 metres AMSL. Ben Macdui lies on the southern edge of the Cairngorm plateau, on the boundary between the historic counties of Aberdeenshire and Banffshire.

Braeriach7.6km from Beinn Bhrotain

Braeriach is the third-highest mountain in the British Isles, surpassed only by Ben Nevis and Ben Macdui. It is the highest point in the western massif of the Cairngorms, separated from the central section by the pass of the Lairig Ghru. The summit has a crescent shape, with several corries. Probably the most commonly used route up Braeriach starts from Sugar Bowl car park, on the road leading to the Cairn Gorm ski area.
