Coire nan Clach (Beinn a' Bhuird)Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND
Climbs 31 – Rocktype Granite – Altitude 950m a.s.l – Faces E
The left skyline of this buttress is Slab and Arete and the right skyline is Sentinel Route. The right-facing corner in the mass of slabs inbetween is the Jewell-Kammer route with Streakers route being the groove some 10m right.
In Coire nan Clach itself, the routes of Bag of Crystals and The Recluse lie immediately right of Dividing Buttress. The series of buttresses and gullies to the right of this are the ones described in the guide, with Crocus Gully topping out at about 093 997 (I think).
Promontory Gully lies on the nose that splits the corrie with other routes lying nearby.
Black Crag is a SW-facing outcrop below the plateau rim 400m ESE from the North Top containing several rock routes.

Either from Linn of Quoich or up Glen Slugain from Invercauld. Both are bike-able, the former as far as the shielings under Carn Allt na Beinne (080948) and the latter as far as underneath Coire na Ciche (snow-dependent) if you are prepared to carry your bike past the steepness near the old Slugain lodge.
Parking fee of £2.50 if you use the Invercauld carpark at Keiloch.
