Day Trip to Glenshee
on Saturday 6 April 2019

The map required is LandRanger 43 Braemar to Blair Atholl,
but you can download and print the route section below ....

This is now a past outing.  Like to read about it?

We'll meet at Cathcart at 07.50 so that we can arrange cars and leave by 08.00.

We'lltTravel to Perth and then to Blairgowrie and the A93 to the start point. As the Spittal of Glenshee Hotel is now a shell, I suggest that any wishing to travel direct meet us at the car park the bottom of the Devil’s Elbow (GR 139757) .. travel time should be around 2 hrs 15 mins, so if you wish to make your own way there, we should meet around 10.15.

After the walk, we can drive to Bridge of Cally for refreshments.

Proposed Route .. Glas Maol and Creag Leacach (GR 167766 and 155746)

From the car park, follow the path up on to the ridge of Leacann Dubh and then on to Meall Odhar.  From there go southeast to Glas Maol.  A detour to Little Glas Maol can extend the walk. Return to the ridge and follow it to the 2nd Munro Creag Leacach. Continue along the ridge to Carn Ait before heading north to Meall Gorm and the descent back to the car park.

Distance 14.5 km (9 mls)
Total ascent 880 m
Likely time 5 - 6 hours
