Had a few hours to spare in Braemar today so decided to walk up Morrone.

Weather was sunny and hot so was nice to get in the shade.

Passed playing field and through wooded area to pick up path to the top, which was steep, but some great views back to Braemar and the Seafield Walkers taking in the view.

This might be a short walk but you get views all around.
