No need to be concerned with the deer stalking as its all open path. Took a shortcut after the cairnwell, right down the side of the hill. Steep but great fun. It is a shame there are masts on the top, spoils it.

All in all an easy route, few steep bits to get the heart started. Recommend this for young enthusiasts.

You sould be concerned about Deer Stalking but you should read the signs Invercauld Estate have up
they DO ASK that walkers stay to the paths and ridges ,
Not as you did and took a shortcut for a bit of fun :roll: :crazy: :crazy:
