Coronavirus / Covid-19
Following recent changes in government advice regarding Covid-19 to avoid all non-essential travel and maintain social distancing, all walks and other activities are cancelled until further notice.
We will continue to review the situation in line with guidance issued by the government. Further information can be found here, and will be udpated in due course.
Mount Battock is the most easterly Corbett, and quite a remote hill but is accessible from the public road up Glen Esk at Milldon Lodge. This is a rounded grassy hill with no particular difficulties. Views on a clear day will be extensive over Angus and Aberdeenshire. About 15km, 9 miles on tracks and paths and heather moorland, 5 - 7 hours walking, c 700m of ascent. This is a hill walk so expect some steep sections, muddy paths and boggy sections.
People intending to take part in this event should read GOC's document Safety in the Hills.
