Walk 1 Morrone Braemar 859m

O.S. Sheet 43 Length: 10 km (6m) Ascent: 500 m

The walk starts from the Braemar duck pond and follows a track up to admire the views at the indicator. We climb more steeply on path to the summit masts, then descend easily on good land rover track to Glen Clunie. A short walk along the golf course road returns us to the duck pond. There are no stream crossings at all, and we should find purple autumn gentians en route.

Please note as this route goes through farmland and it will only be suitable for dogs on leads. The views on this walk are beautiful on a good day.

Walkers must wear walking boots, warm and waterproof clothing and take plenty food and liquids sunscreen? THESE ARE ESSENTIAL.

Minibus Leaves Culter Village Hall at 8.30am Return approx 5.30pm (possibly 6pm if stop for refreshments)
Bus Fee: Members 10 and Non-members 12

Start Linn O Dee car park 5km approx walk in on track to White Bridge. We continue approx another 6km on track and stony path along Glen Dee to 988920 and head steeply up hill through deep heather in places to the summit. This is a strenuous walk.

If the weather is unfavourable we will perhaps change our route and do something shorter in the same area. We may not be finished our walk till very early part of the evening so take money for chips or pie and pint in the Fife!
