LOCHNAGAR AND THE 5 WHITE MOUNTH MUNROS - 21ST JULY 2018
The Scottish Mountaineering Club guide book for the Cairngorms, written by Adam Watson, states that Lochnagar surpasses all other hills in the North East and we agree. The hills of the Mounth are simply stunning. The ground is more fertile compared to the Cairngorm plateau, so you will find more vegetation and wildlife as a result, including some very rare plants on the northern facing corries. Mountain Hare and Ptarmigan are often seen, as are Red Deer and occasionally the magnificent Golden Eagle.
The area is also full of history, we look forward to sharing this with you on our walk. Your expert guide will safely show you the way and point out the interesting features as you walk.
