Lovely outing starting from glen doll car park. A tear drop route this one:

Cross the bridge and head past Moulzie cottage then up the Bachnadairn.

Continue heading up the path till it plateaus with Loch Esk below you. The path heading up recently had work done and is in great condition. From there the path continues to be well defined and easy to follow. Swing around a couple of tops and you come over to Cairn Bannoch and shortly onto Broad Cairn.

Heads down towards the hut and take the path down to the bridge crossing the Bachnagairn and your heading back towards the car park.
