This beautiful circular walk leaves Braemar along the River Clunie before picking up the Queen's Drive - a carriage drive once favoured by Queen Victoria. This gently gains height and gives excellent views before a steeper descent through the woods leads back to Braemar.


Good paths throughout; ascent is gentle but descent steeper.

Public Transport
