Starting point Starting point in Aberdeenshire

There are 11 cairns to discover within the Balmoral Estate and this short walk takes in two of them – Prince Albert’s Cairn (aka “the pyramid”!) and Princess Beatrice’s Cairn. A beautiful forestry trail awaits, and after a fairly steady walk uphill you will reach the summit of Creag an Lurachain (442 m /1450 ft) where the pyramid sits. A steeper but shorter descent follows, and a very lovely suspension bridge crossing.
