Glas Allt Shiel

This old royal hunting lodge was built for Queen Victoria, who reportedly envisaged it as a refuge following the death of her husband Albert. It stands on the shores of Loch Muick, its bay windows and handsome gables looking out across the water. One of the adjacent outhouses is now an open bothy.

This beautiful walk starts on the car park and takes you to Glas-allt-Shiel. It takes around 1.15 hours to get to the bothy, after that you have the option to do a circular route around the Loch or return back.
