A Scottish mountain summit that once had Munro status has been featured as walk of the week by the Scotsman Newspaper.
Standing 972 metres (3,1789 ft) above sea level, Creag an Dail Mhor is high enough for the status but did not have sufficient separation to be classed as a mountain in its own right alongside the higher Ben Avon (3,842 ft) and the paper noted it was de-listed in 1921.
The article suggested the ascent of the mountain - which is in the Cairngorms National Park - could be aided by using mountain bikes
to ride up Gleann an t-Slugain to get nearer.
Ben Avon itself is a high plateau whose highest point is one of a cluster of rocky granite tors known as Leabaidh an Diamh Bhuidhe, which translates as "the bed of the yellow deer".
Those feeling fit can take their walking boots
onto the neighbouring Munro of Beinn a' Bhuird (3,927 ft) as well.
