Brown Cow Hill circuit, Cock Bridge

Brown Cow Hill is the highest summit of a sprawling area of rounded heather moorland. This route forms a horseshoe of the higher summits, with boggy ground and peat hags breaking up sections of easier going across short-cropped heather. Though unspectacular, the route gives good views and a chance to experience solitude.

Terrain

Landrover tracks, faint moorland paths and some pathless heather. There are several boggy sections of peat-hagged ground.

Public Transport

None to start.

Start

Car park for Corgarff Castle. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
