The most Eastern

Route: Mount Keen from Glen Esk

Munros: Mount Keen

Date walked: 09/06/2024

Time taken: 5 hours

Distance: 17.5km

Ascent: 681m

Originally todays plans was for a Donald’s circuit with dad with southern Scotland looking to originally take the best of the weather, until Friday night when that all changed, and the East looked to be the best so as far East as we could have went, we did. It was a bit blowy but with nothing to block any wind what more can you expect :lol:

A good walk to Mount Keen following WH route. 4hr 6 moving time, just shy of 5 hours car to car. It was nice to sit out the wind on the summit for a morning sandwich and a natter with some likeminded walkers

A stop off at the Queens Well aswell which is worth the short detour.

A good track the whole way, good views, good company and good weather. What more can you ask for on a Sunday 🤷🏼‍♀️
