A lovely walk in beautiful countryside and not too strenuous. Loch Muick is a lovely drive up from near by Ballater and upon arrival there is ample parking. Gazing out onto the loch is one of those great to be a live moments, take a picnic and enjoy the walk.
If you are hungry on the way back Ballater has plenty of eating places if the weather is good get fish anmd chips from the local chip shop and eat al fresco on the green, fantastic.

The house you pass is called Glassel Shiel. It was built by Queen Victoria after the death of Prince Albert. It has nothing to do with the Queen mother

Fabulous view coming down by the waterfall after a hike up Lochnagar - we were very fortunate that the sun was out making our hike all that more special - beautiful, magical area.

Was recommended to visit and so glad we did the views on the various walks is breathtaking.
It costs to park think it was £3 and there were plenty of different paths to chose from depending on your fitness. Only wished we had more time so we could return to walk a different route, hope to return.
