Mayar and Driesh, Glen Clova

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

A stunning ascent through picturesque Corrie Fee leads up to the extensive rolling plateau above - visiting the summits of Mayar and Driesh. With the descent on the excellent Kilbo path back to Glendoll forest at the head of Glen Clova, in summer conditions this makes a straightforward round for two Munros. NOTE: Kilbo path is currently diverted until October due to tree harvesting; the diversion is extremely challenging to descend due to mud and fallen branches and walkers are strongly recommended to instead return by retracing steps via Corrie Fee.

Terrain

Good path to back of Corrie Fee, then pathless section over moorland, rough path to Driesh - navigation aided by fence posts, descent on rough path.
