Mortlich ascent, Aboyne

Head past the Loch of Aboyne and through the woods beyond to climb the steep hill of Mortlich for great views over Deeside. There used to be an alternative descent, but this has been lost to the bracken, so instead the walk returns the same way.


Varied walking on minor road, short section on golf course, unmarked woodland paths and steep climb to summit of Morlich.
