The Buck of Cabrach
This prominent cone-shaped peak has a road high on its flanks, making for a short ascent, though the intial stretch is across very boggy ground. Good all round views and pictish-style carvings near the summit.
Rough moorland path, very wet and indistinct initially, clearer and drier higher up.
None to start.
B9002 south of Elrick.
