From Acharn along Jock's Rd to Crow Craigies S Top, Crow Craigies, then round to Tolmount and Tom Buidhe, descending SE to White Water and the Shelter, reurning to Acharn along Jock's Rd.kdbennett22/09/2019
From the visitor centre car park we followed the track alongside the west side of the burn towards Moulzie. Once out of the forest, from the bridge headed straight up to Cairn Broadlands, then easy walk to Craig Mellon (including the cairned top), over the ice and snow to West Corrie, and then SW to Craig Damff. The conditions were so good (no wind, lots of sunshine, easy-going snow) that we carried on over Cairn Damff, across Den of Altduthrie, and up the southern flank of Craigs of Loch Esk. From there it was a simple hop over to Crow Craigies (South Top) and a final summit at Cairn Lunkard. A snow-slide down to the Shelter and a homeward trek along the well constructed Jock's road through Glen Doll ended a superb day (about 6 hrs in total).summitter18/03/2019
