  • Unnamed Road Scotland, DD8 4RD United Kingdom (map)

On this trip you will set out on Jock's Road from Glen Clova.  We will leave the forests of Glen Doll behind us on this high mountain pass to Glen Callater.  There will be the chance to tick off a couple of Munros on this adventure including the magnificent Lochnagar. The distances we will cover aren't long but there will be sizable height gain on each day.  No prior experience is necessary, but a reasonable level of fitness is recommended.
