Glen Callater

One of the most attractive access points into the eastern Cairngorms, this beautiful meandering glen is ideal for both walking and biking. Ending at a mountain loch surrounded by steep cliffs, the glen is home to many unusual plants, like the tiny woolly willow, which, at a few centimetres high, is one of Scotland's smallest shrubs.

2 miles, 3 km (2mins) south of Braemar, on the A93.


  • Informal car park at Auchallater.
  • Access point to many Munros including Lochnagar, and to "Jocks Road" the old drove road from Braemar to Glen Doll.
  • Beautiful low-level walk along the glen to the idyllic Loch Callater (6 mile, 10km return trip).
