Creag Chòinnich, Braemar

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Creag Chòinnich is the diminutive but beautiful little hill just east of Braemar, clothed in pinewoods. Its ascent makes a short but very steep walk, which can easily be combined with the Lion's Face walk.


Good path but very steep; rocky higher up
