Starting just 3km south of Braemar at Auchallater, this walk takes you to Loch Callater, a beautiful inland loch that’s approximately 1.6km long and is surrounded by steep hills.  On reaching the loch, you can have a break in the Callater Stables bothy (which also has toilet facilities). 

From the loch, we take a good path up to the rim of the impressive Coire Loch Kander. From there we walk to the first Munro, Carn an Tuirc (1019m). This hill stands east above Glen Shee and provides excellent views down to the Glen. The second Munro, Cairn of Claise (1064m) is only a short walk away.
