Beinn a' Bhùird is a Munro in the Cairngorm mountain range of Scotland.

In "Watson (1975)" the author suggests the mountain should be named "Beinn Bòrd - table hill" saying that local Scottish Gaelic speakers pronounced the mountain "Paing Bòrd", with some of the older local folk still using "Painna Bòrd".

The closest 'village' to Beinn a' Bhùird is Braemar, Aberdeenshire and the most common approach by car is through this village. To reach Beinn a' Bhùird by car, the most common approach is by the "Linn of Dee" road along the south side of the "River Dee" to the "Linn of Dee", looping back along the north-bank to the car park at Allanaquoich where camping is permitted. The distance between "Braemar" and "Allanaquoich" by this route is about 10 miles.


The usual ascent of Beinn a' Bhùird is from the car park at Allanaquoich walking up "Glen Quoich" and following the land rover road up "An Diollaid".

An alternate ascent follows the "Quoich Water" through the Am Beitheachan to the bealach named "The Sneck" - "Watson (1975)" (and the 1:25000 series Ordnance Survey maps) - between Beinn a' Bhùird and Ben Avon.
