Morrone ascent, Braemar
Morrone is a Corbett that sits above Braemar and makes a lovely hill circuit on a fine day. With 360 degree views of the surrounding Cairngorm peaks and over Braemar itself, this walk with a pretty riverside return route makes a great half day excursion.
Good path, track and minor road. Steep but straightforward ascent unless visibility poor.
Regular bus service between Braemar and Aberdeen.
