Carn Daimh from Tomnavoulin - Glenlivet Estate Waymarked Walk 5




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 Tomnavoulin on one of the Glenlivet Estate waymarked trails (No. 5) - See map.
