Lochnagar - DESCRIPTION

For the majority Lochnager is undoubtedly the best Munro in this region and is widely regarded as one of the finest in Scotland. It boasts both great height and great features. The finest of these being its huge NE corrie stretching out round the curved summit ridge. There are 200m cliff drops to the secluded Lochan of the same name. These cliffs are well seen from the approach in from the Spittal of Glenmuick, they truly are a fantastic site. These cliffs are a Mecca for rock climbers and ice climbers alike but for the common everyday walker routes exist up the eastern rim of the corrie via a high col between Lochnager and subsidiary peak Meikle Pap.

The actual summit of Lochnager is called Cac Carn Beag and sits on the NW corner of the corrie. A subsidiary top 6m shorter than the true summit sits slightly further SE precariously positioned on the rim of the coire.

The south western slopes of Lochnager are a complete contrast to that of the north where broad ridges lead to the rest of the Munros of the White Mounth. Carn a Choire Bhoidheach is the nearest neighbouring Munro. Lochnager and rest of the hills of the White Mounth can be climbed in one day however this would inevitably involve an ascent from the west robbing you of the best views of Lochnager.

Lochnager really is one of the greats of Scottish mountaineering and a good day out should hopefully be had by all. Please check the avalanche forecast before venturing out however, as Lochnager is prone to avalanches and has been the site of several fatalities over the years.

Lochnagar is the most scenic munro in it's region, best ascended from Meikle Pap Col from the Spittal Of Glenmuick car park. Best decent is down Glas Allt, lovely waterfall there and good view to loch muick. This decent route is more distance than the ascent but worth it.
