Walk Notes

O.S.Map 44 (Ballater & Glen Clova).

N.B. 8.00am start from Aberdeen.

Today, we are back in one of the lesser known Angus Glens – Glen Ogil. The outing today is a circular one, so members who require a shorter, or different walk – please indicate your intentions with your committee member in charge of the bus.

The walk commences at the farm of Glenley (NGR 452 632), across a bridge over the Noran Water at the mouth of Glen Ogil. A track leaves the road here and heads N’wards over the shoulder of Auchnacree Hill which borders Glen Ogil reservoir down in the valley. The path climbs over the western shoulder of New Moss (479m) and then heads for a dip between it and the western end of Hill of Garbet (581m). The ongoing route climbs to the summit of Mount Sned (621m). Leave this top and head towards Birse Shades and then onwards to Hill of Glansie (726m). From the summit head towards Dog Hillock and then S’wards down the valley of the Trusty Burn to pick up a path at Duthriss Hill (531m) heading SE’wards for the Glen Ogil reservoir. Keep on the east side of the Noran Water and cross the dam’s southern end on a good path. Walk through the tree path to reach Glen Ogil (NGR 447 632) and, further on, turn left at a T-junction (NGR 449 629), back to the bus at Glenley.

Walking distance approx. 12 miles.

Bus departs (at least) at 4.00pm. If all walkers are back on the bus, and all have agreed to go, then the bus will depart.

In the event of an emergency arising, the person in charge of the outing should be contacted, if possible, before the police are contacted.

Relevant telephone number for Grampian police is 0845 600 5700 or 999.

Committee member in charge today is David Fenlon
