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.
