Mount Keen by Glen Tanar

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Mount Keen is the most easterly of the Munros, taking the form of a dome-shaped swelling above the general level of the vast Mounth plateaux. The shortest route to it is from Glen Esk in the south, but the finest is this longer approach through the magnificent pinewoods of Glen Tanar.


Easy going hillwalk with a long approach; good track and paths.

Public Transport

No public transport.


Car park (charge) on the right, by Bridge of Tanar. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.

Deer Stalking information

North of summit: Glen Tanar Estate. Stalking from late Sept to 20 Oct. No stalking at weekends. The main path up Mount Keen from the end of the tarred road in Glen Tanar is always OK. When stalking is taking place, it would be helpful if walkers could avoid using the Garbh Coire path (NO394917 to NO407900). If further information is needed, please e-mail (any time) or phone 01339 886451 during office hours.
