Lochnagar

Lochnagar ( 3790ft,  1155m ) above Loch Muik

Lochnagar ( Beinn Chžochan ) is  located about five miles south of the River Dee near Balmoral.

The mountain's principal feature is a north-facing corrie beneath the summit.

The mountain is popular with hillwalkers at all times of the year. 

The normal route of ascent is from Glen Muick.

Care is necessary in poor visibility as the plateau is devoid of obvious features with cliffs on its northern edge.
