Carn Daimh Hill Walk from Tomintoul




Cairn Daimh (Hill of the Stags) at 1866ft (570m) is most often ascended in the course of following the Tomintoul Spur of the Speyside Way, between Glenlivet and Tomintoul. However, the ascent of this hill makes a good circular walk from Glenconglass on the Crown's Glenlivet Estate. This is an interesting walk which provides good opportunities for seeing forest and moorland wildlife and includes some expansive views of the Estate and the Eastern Cairngorms. A steady ascent through sheltered plantations leads to the exposed summit of the hill (pronounced Cairn Dye), before returning across open heather moorland to the starting point at Glenconglass farm.
