Munros and other Magical Mountains - Mayar and Dreish
Sun 22 October 2017, 09:30 – 16:30 BST
These relatively easy Munros are accessed from Glen Doll and give great views towards the Lochnagar high level plateau and the surrounding Angus Glens. Starting from Glen Doll then through Corrie Fee; one of nine National Nature Reserves within the Cairngorms with a wild amphitheatre of rocky landscape that has been sculpted by the power of ice and water.
A mixture of good paths with some rougher ground. We ascend gradually with a steeper descent on a good path.
Distance walked 14.5 kilometres ( 9 miles) with 835 m climb ( over 2500 feet)
Look forward to seeing you there.
Are there any age limits to taking part?
If you are under 18 years of age you need to have a responsible adult with you. This is not advised for children under 14 years of age.
How fit do I need to be?
You should be comfortable walking for a few hours; be able to cover around 3 miles on level ground in an hour; be fit enough to go up flights of stairs easily and take part in regular physical activity several times a week. Sometime the ground is uneven so it helps to be comfortable walking off tracks as well as on tracks.
