Craigdendarroch may be a small hill, but it has a big place in the affections of Ballater folk. Its oakwood-clad flanks are steep making its ascent an enjoyable but arduous little walk. The views are superb.


Clear path, very steep at times, also passes above steep drops.

Public Transport

Ballater is well served by buses running between Braemar and Aberdeen.
