Sunday 4th September
Monamenach (804m) is a Corbett, the high point of a range of rounded grassy hills lying between Spittal of Glenshee and Glen Isla. Our walk takes in the gentler west-facing bowl, starting at the outdoor centre south of Spittal, and using a track to climb northwest up Black Hill. We then follow the watershed southeast to Monamenach, continuing on to Craigenloch before a steep descent drops us to the col above Loch Beanie. The final climb of the day is up Duchray Hill and back to the cars
After the initial track ascent, it is likely there is little path but the ground should be reasonably short grass/heather with bog thrown in for free. There are a number of short climbs bringing total ascent to about 900m, distance 16km.
As with many lower ranges, here the views of the high hills north and west are stunning.
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 top whatever the forecast.
Meet at Culter Village Hall 8am, return around 6-7pm
Transport by car – contributions to the drivers please!
