Mayar and its neighbour Driesh are the most southern Munros in this region and sit at opposite ends of a long plateau separating Glen Clova to the north and Glen Prosen to the south. Mayar sits at the west end of the plateau and only rises a little from the actual plateau. When viewed from the south the hill looks like an area of high moorland with little in the way of features. The north face however is a different story, where a series of deep corries bite into the Munro above Glen Doll. The most western corrie called Corrie Fee is the usual route of ascent. It is a steep climb up the corrie headwall but enjoyable.

Driesh is connected to Mayar via a sharp col called "The Shank" from here it is easy slopes all the way to the summit of Driesh.

Due to the impressive northern faces of these two hills they make for a fantastic day out on the hills. They are easily accessible from Glen Doll Lodge to the NE where there is parking available.

Best ascended from Corrie Fee, nice waterfall in the corrie but quite steep. For a good day on the hills try Driesh as well, there is the remenents of a deer fence between Mayar and most of the way to Driesh, which in bad visability would help navigation.
