Cairnwell Hills

This area is to the west of Glenshee and south of the river Dee. Good access points are up Glen Ey in the North and from the Spittal or Glenshee in the south using a bike, or from the ski area at Glenshee. Unlike the nearby areas there is no high level plateau connecting these hills, just the normal rigdes. These ridges can provide alternative return routes back to the Spittal as they connect together quite well without too much re-ascent, rather than the rather monotonous tracks which provide the direct routes. Look out for the dismantled railway track as this provides an alternative to the track up the Lochsie burn without needing a river crossing.
