White Mounth Munros, Glen Muick

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

A long hillwalk taking in the five Munros on the extensive White Mounth plateau. Lochnagar is by far the finest of the summits, but in good weather this is all a hugely enjoyable round with a great feeling of space.

Terrain

A long and exposed mountain route; in good conditions the stony tundra-like terrain makes for easy going. Steep boulderfield on the ascent of Lochnagar.

Public Transport

Bus from Ballater (Jul-Sep only).

Start

Car park at Spittal of Glen Muick. Map and directions.
