Leabaidh an Daimh Bhuidhe

Located on the border of Aberdeenshire and Moray, this is the highest of the tops of Ben Avon, reaching a height of 1171m (3842 feet) and qualifying as a Munro. Ben Avon has a number of interesting geomorphological features with various dry rocky gaps which were cut back by glacial meltwater rivers and various tors. Some of the tors are big enough to be seen from the River Dee, which runs to its south. The biggest tor, Leabaidh an Daimh Bhuidhe, forms the summit and the name is Gaelic, meaning "bed of the yellow stag".
