Glenshee Munros

Guided hillwalking days in the Southern Cairngorms

South of Braemar and Ballater, The Mounth is a high level plain with many peaks and coires. The vast and remote expanse can be exceptionally difficult to navigate on, even in clear conditions. Glenshee divides this area, with its high col making an ideal starting point from where to hike from and bag up to 9 Munros over 2 days.
