Route info: The Lochnagar Circuit

Keith made a few notes about the Lochnagar circuit, one of the biggest munro walks from the summer. We took two days to do it, so why not grab yourself a cuppa, probably a biscuit or two, (it’s quite a long read) get comfy and give it a read…. 1st day: So the plan was to […]
