Hillwalking Creag Chonnich - Scottish Walks.

Length: 1 mile Duration:  1. ½ Hours.
Difficulty: 5/10 O.S. 43

If you are planning to spend a few days in this neck of the woods, my suggestion is that, to get your hill legs working, why not try the local walk of Creag Choinnich, which is relatively easy and will break you in for some longer walks to follow. Next to St Ninians church, pick up the path that will lead you to a gate that is the start of the walk

The first part is through forestry for some 700yds, then the trees end to open up into a view down the Dee valley, as you climb higher the Glen Shee valley is visible to your left and the views of the Dee valley gets better and better the higher you go. On reaching the summit and looking northward, Braemar Castle appears, settling nicely in the Dee valley. If this little walk doesn't inspire you to better things, then nothing will!
