“Walk around the loch, flat good path most of the way and about three hours OR do the big hill Lochnagar. Ensure someone knows you are going up and always take cold weather gear and food and phone . There are steep drops at the summit, dog owners beware. ”

“Explore this deep-sided wooded valley where the Burn of Alyth tumbles down. Although described here from the first car park on the road out of Alyth, it is possible to start from the centre of Alyth. There are different ways to enter the Den and the walk is breathtaking with rivers running through it and bridges to cross. A great adventure. ”

“Full or half circuit walk in stunning scenery. Wrap up well unless it’s a warm day! The loch is popular with walkers as it is picturesque, has a fairly flat path around its perimeter and is accessible by road. There is a parking area before reaching the Loch. The bothy behind Glas-allt Shiel, a hunting lodge built for Queen Victoria, lies at the western end of the north shore. Loch Muick (pronounced Loch Mick)lies approximately 5 mi (8.0 km) south of Braemar, Scotland at the head of Glen Muick and within the boundary of the Balmoral estate. A wide variety of bird and animal life can be found in and around the loch including red squirrel, red deer, oyster catchers.”

“The Reekie Linn is the most impressive waterfall in the region, its great power making it an awesome sight especially in spate. The very short walk to it is very pleasant through deciduous woodland on the rim of a deep and dangerous gorge.”

Campground
“Not far away from us is the Piperdam Resort. Set around a small loch the resort has a range of activities available from quad bike tours to fishing to archery. It has an indoor pool and spa with gym, beauty treatment areas, etc. Its bar serves good bar meals and has a good atmosphere, as does the restaurant with its views over the loch. The menu is good and although priced a little higher, is still good value for the food that is served.”

“Situated at the end of the Broughty Ferry Esplanade, near Monifieth, the rock garden is a lovely spot if you enjoy nature, wildlife or horticulture. Managed by a team of volunteers, the garden is easily reached by car, on foot or by bicycle. It actually sits on part of Dundee's much loved Green Circular, a 26-mile cycle route which circumnavigates the city.”
