From the south end of Braemar village follow the road that takes you past the Duck Pond, (well signposted), then take the left branch of a forked path. This is a straight forward walk to the top of Morrone or Morven (big hill). A relatively easy climb to the top and back should take about three hours and there is an alternative descent on the other side of the hill if you prefer.
The walk to the top is gratifying in the sense that views in all directions are fantastic, especially Lochnagar over to the east and to the west, The Devil,s Point, Ben Macdui and Cairn Toul. Enjoy.
