Driesh and Mayar

SUNDAY 3rd September 2006

Length: 14km Ascent: 820m approx OS map 44

Driesh and Mayar are two easy Munros, rising from the moorland south of Glen Clova. From the Glen Doll car park we follow a forest track for a short distance before turning on to the Kilbo path. This path climbs through forest at first and then open hillside to the col between Driesh and Mayar. We turn south-east and then east to reach the summit of Driesh (271736). We return to the col and head westwards to Mayar (241738). From the summit we descend north to the head of the Corrie Fee, where we follow a steep path down beside the Fee Burn. The path eventually leads back into the forest and becomes a forest road which takes us back to the car park.

Walkers must wear walking boots, carry warm and waterproof clothing, hat and gloves and take plenty food and liquids. THESE ARE ESSENTIAL. Be prepared for possible wintry conditions on the top whatever the time of year.
