Refine your search for walks in Aberdeenshire
There are 11 cairns to discover within the Balmoral Estate and this short walk takes in two of them – Prince Albert’s Cairn (aka “the pyramid”!) and Princess Beatrice’s Cairn. A beautiful forestry trail awaits, and after a fairly steady walk uphill you will reach the summit of Creag an Lurachain (442 m /1450 ft) where the pyramid sits. A steeper but shorter descent follows, and a very lovely suspension bridge crossing.
This Aberdeenshire walk explores four summits on Bennachie. The route offers some excellent walking, wonderful views and the opportunity to visit an ancient hilltop fort of Mither Tap.
