Morrone ascent, Braemar

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Morrone is a Corbett that sits above Braemar and makes a lovely hill circuit on a fine day. With 360 degree views of the surrounding Cairngorm peaks and over Braemar itself, this walk with a pretty riverside return route makes a great half day excursion.


Good path, track and minor road. Steep but straightforward ascent unless visibility poor.

Public Transport

Regular bus service between Braemar and Aberdeen.


Braemar village centre. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
