Morrone birkwood (birk is Scots for birch) clothes the flanks of the hill rising south of Braemar. It is regarded as one of the finest examples of 'downy' birchwoods in the UK and with vast areas of juniper. This fine circuit explores the nature reserve and has some wonderful views into the Cairngorms.
