O.S Map 44 (Ballater).

N.B. 8.00am start from Aberdeen.

The walk today, takes your Club back into the popular Angus Glens. We travel to Glen Esk, to the entrance of Glen Effock, which is just a few miles short of the Invermark car park. Once personnel are offloaded, our bus will then travel back to Glen Clova hotel car park to our pick-up point. Your Club last did this walk in May 2012, when we had a lovely day, with the broom in Glen Clova in full bloom and, at its best in vibrant yellow. This walk is a through-one, so members who require a shorter, or alternative, walk, please indicate your intentions with your committee member in charge of the bus.

Our walk starts at the entrance to Glen Effock (NGR 458 790), where we head SW’wards over the bridge of the River North Esk to a path (NGR 451 784) ascending to Cairn Caidloch (647m). Continue on this path W’wards to gain Wester Skuiley (736m) and Muckle Cairn (826m). Continue W’wards over the northern sides of 2 unnamed tops at 855m and 857m to reach Green Hill (870m), then descend on either side of Loch Brandy to Clova Hotel carpark where our bus will be waiting (NGR 327 731).

Walking distance approx. 12 miles

Bus departs from Glen Clova at 6.00pm.
