The Glenshee Munros

Friday 9th - Sunday 11th December 2022

About the event:

The Glenshee Munros are arguably quite straight forward. The large eastern plateau offers 6 Munros in a day in summer whereas to the west lies the Cairnwell three. Behind these are some slightly remoter and more challenging hills though compared to their more northern cousins on the higher main Cairngorms Plateau, they are relatively straight forward. These can be great late winter days out. The ski centre detritus litters these hills in summer making three of them at least rather grim and sad places. Once past the ski areas they offer fabulous days walking.


We'll aim to explore the Munros in the area, and which ones we tackle and how many will depend largely on the weather. There is no guarantee that we will reach summits as early winter in Scotland on the mountains can still be brutal with hurricane strength winds and white out blizzards. However, we will have some epic days in the wild regardless.

Meeting Point:

08:00 at different spots in the area depending on which Munros we tackle (weather will dictate).

However, for a view of the area from Google Maps, please click here (This will open in a new tab)

Difficulty:

There are good approach tracks but higher up these may well be snow-covered. There may be deep powder snow which can be energy sapping!! Given the longer daylight hours we'll aim to make the most of the light.

Cost:

The trip costs £199 per person with discounts for booking more than one place.

Under 18s are welcome so long as they are accompanied by their parent/guardian. You will need to arrange your own accommodation, travel insurance and transport. If you’d like to book more places that are shown, please get in touch.

Numbers:

I can take a maximum of 8 and a minimum of 2.

Equipment:

It is absolutely impossible to know what the conditions will be like until nearer the time. It could be full snow-covered winter terrain or nearly normal summer ground conditions. Please see the All activities and winter specific activities gear list.

I can loan out technical equipment for the duration of the event but of course you are welcome to bring your own if you have them or hire them from Braemar Mountain Sports.
