A Munro for the short while between being recorded in 1891 and deemed to be a Top in the 1921 review; the hill has two summits with a saddle between them, also with a north-south orientation like the parent hill Ben Avon.
Claiming the mountain can be easily incorporated into a round - after bagging Leabaidh an Daimh Bhuidhe carry on over the plateau and over Ben Avon (the south summit) then up the rise to the summit at the south end - Carn Eas; from there descend and cross the precipitous dip onto another original-list but now lost Munro Creag na Dala Mhòr - then walk down the slope to rejoin the route out along Gleann an t-Slugain.

In the heart of the Southern Cairngorms, this hill is a ramp down from or up to the mega-plateau of Ben Avon / Beinn a' Bhuird. Look due west into the massive corries and Bhuird's twin Tops.
