Conachcraig 865m 1st June
Total ascent: 560 m OS map 44 distance 11km
Conachcraig (NO 280865) is the corbett directly beside Lochnagar on its east side. Its name translated means jumble of rocks, and it is in fact a bouldery hill of three summits and some small cliffs.
We will start at the carpark at the head of Glen Muick, walk to Allt-na-guibhsaich and then follow the landrover track up Lochnagar to 274863 where there is a junction of tracks. Past a large boulder on the right side of the landy track, we will head NE on a narrow track up the slopes of Conachcraig to the true summit at 865m. There are magnificent views of Lochnagar for the top and good views of surrounding areas.
We will explore the other summits of 850m (284872) and Caisteal na Caillich, 862m.
If visibility is good we will descend off-path eastwards from the 850m summit to the little col at Carn an Daimh (stony hill of the deer). From there we can descend SE picking the most favourable route through the rocks and heather to the pine forest and landy track below. Then it is a short walk to Allt-na-guibhsaich and back to the car park.
