Braemar is the southern gateway to the Cairngorm mountains. If you’re looking for low level walking, the pinewoods of Glen Derry and Luibeg are simply stunning. Over 35 Munros can be accessed from Braemar, including four of the five highest mountains in the UK. We have compiled information on some of our favourite walks, set in a historical context, and can help you plan your route with our personalised OS map. If you want to learn explore new skills, Sue Harper from Braemar Mountain Guides is a qualified International Mountain Leader and offers bespoke guiding and instruction.
Braemar is well served for natural mountain bike trails and we can help with suggestions on routes for all abilities. For a great source of local information, including guiding, we recommend Cycle Highlands in Ballater.
