From the drop off point on the A93 Glenshee road the walk starts with a steady climb to the summit of Carn an Tuirc at 1019m. The high ground is followed to the next summit at Cairn of Claise at 1064m and then along the ridge to the summit of Glas Maol 1068m the highest point in Angus. From there a short descent leads to the long stony ridge of Creag Leacach at 987m. This is an excellent area to look out for Ptarmigan among the boulders. A steep descent completes the challenge returning to the pick-up point on the A93 road.

Full hillwalking gear required.
