Mount Keen from Glen Esk
Mount Keen is the most easterly of the Munros, taking the form of a dome rising above vast swathes of empty, bleak moorland, with extensive views on a good day. The ascent from Glen Esk via Glen Mark is the shortest route and gives good going underfoot.
Track and good hillpath, but very exposed in bad weather.
Very limited (school bus times only) bus from Brechin.
Invermark car park, Glen Esk.
