Mount Battock is the highest point on a vast expanse of rolling, peaty moorland and is the most easterly of the Corbetts. Usually approached via Glen Esk, this longer route from the east visits the great granite tor of Clachnaben along the way.


Mostly good tracks and paths but very exposed with little shelter. Bealach after Clachnaben is briefly very boggy.
