LOCHNAGAR with hillguide – Sunday 21st August 2022


~Come join us for special day out in the mountains with Usana Mindset and Hillgoers~

Lochnagar, or also known as Cac Carn Beag (1155m), is a majestic mountain, and stands proud as the backdrop to the beautiful Royal Deeside village of Ballater. It forms part of the White Mounth, a stunning area with much wildlife, including hare, ptarmigan and red deer.

Our route, which will be accompanied by a hillguide, will go via the saddle of the mountain, where you’ll climb the boulder ‘staircase’ and then walk around the crag to the summit.  Descending, we will take the path down to Loch Muick via Glas-Allt-Shiel (Queen Victoria’s lodge that was build after her beloved King Albert passed away.)

Distance is approx 12 miles, and you can expect to be out walking and enjoying the scenery for 7-8 hours.

These special Usana Mindset walks are not about rushing to the top or talking non stop. Instead you will find these to be insightful, peaceful, reflective and wonderful in bringing the mind back to a balance where you can enjoy the present. 💖

By being out in nature, you remove the noise of life and can gain greater clarity on situations.

There will be a mix of group & 1-2-1 discussions and general chat, plus very importantly, there will also be quiet time for your own reflection, notes and mindfulness. 💕

Furthermore, Usana Mindset is delighted to be offering this day as a special blend of coaching, wellbeing and hillguiding.  We will be joined by a mountain leader from Hillgoers, who will point out numerous fascinating features, history and wildlife as we walk the route.

From leaving the car at Spittal of Loch Muick to the summit, and the wander we will enjoy along the plateau, this is a walk to be cherished.

* Walking will begin at 8.30am on Sunday 21st August, and we will be outdoors for approximately 7-8 hours.*

Please note, there is a £5 carpark charge at the Spittal of Glen Muick.  Coins and credit cards are accepted by the machine.
