The Creag nan Cabher, nr Glenshee, Aberdeenshire.
Difficulty. 3/10. Duration. 2 Hrs.

The morning was spent at the Glenshee Ski Centre, on the A93., just looking around and stupidly I couldn’t help but wonder why it was closed. Yes, I will collect my “Windows for Idiots” book now. Of course, we were well into May, therefore no snow. Duh.

After some sandwiches, I made my way up the A93 for about 4 miles and the start of the first walk in the area. Approaching a small, isolated clump of forestry, where I knew there would be a parking place, I disembarked and made my way across the road to the well visible starting path. This walk would eventually lead to Glen Callater and Callater Burn

The first few hundred yards are easily negotiated then the path becomes very narrow and is situated some way up the hillside with the deep ravine below. This will last for around a half mile under Creag nan Cabhar 834 on the left and Carn Dubh 822 on the right. Behind, Carn na Drochaide 804 and Sgor Mor 887 are very visible on the other side of Glen Clunie.

After crossing over a burn the land becomes easier, at which point Glen and Loch Callater come into view. At the south eastern end of Loch Callater starts the famous Jock’s Road. walk into Glen Doll.
