Back to Craigendarroch

We went for a glorious walk up Craigendarroch today. The landscapes are beautiful at this time of year with a palette of yellows, oranges, golds, reds, browns, pinks, and greens.

Craigendarroch is a steep and craggy hill overlooking the village of Ballater in Aberdeenshire. It’s covered in oak trees, hence the name Craigendarroch – craig from the Gaelic word creag meaning rock and darroch from the gaelic word darach meaning oak tree. It’s a reasonably short walk and can be done up and back in 1.5 hours.
