Craigendarroch Hill

Rising up above the villages of Ballater and Bridge of Gairn in the eastern Caringorms, Craigendarroch’s distinctive pudding bowl shape dominates the local skyline. A climb to the top rewards explorers with a stunning view across Deeside, but the hike is not without its challenges.

Due to loose rocks and steep and narrow paths which can become incredibly slippery when wet, proper walking boots are required, while the climb isn’t suitable for those unsteady on their feet. However, those who do reach the summit will not only enjoy the panoramic views, but the rather impressive natural feature of deep score marks across the surface of Craigendarroch, caused by rocks dragged across by a glacier during the Ice Age.
