Loch Muick Circuit

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

This fairly level circuit of grand Loch Muick on the Balmoral Estate provides good views of the surrounding hills and pleasant stopping places. The walk takes in the impressive Glas-allt Shiel house built by Queen Victoria from where there is an optional detour to see some waterfalls. One of the footbridges at the head of the loch is currently down and won't be repaired until after the water level falls.


Good track and paths.

Public Transport
