This walk uses OS Explorer Map - 388 Lochnagar, Glen Muick and Glen Clova.
This is a great walk taking in 2 of the most easterly Munros: Driesh (947m) and Mayar (928m). These 2 Munros lie just inside the Cairngorms National Park in the Angus glens. The 2 hills are typical of many in the Cairngorms with a pudding shape and grassy slopes. They are ideal for beginners to hill walking and dog walkers, and are easily accessible from Dundee.
This walk starts from the Forestry Commision car park at NO 282 761. The car park is situated at the Glen Doll visitor centre and is a reasonable £2 for all day parking. Sadly the visitor centre does not appear to have a café so no bacon rolls to start the walk(!), but they do have toilets!
