Leaving Ballater behind on day two you’ll head along the River Muick and up onto the shoulder of the infamous mountain of Lochnagar before dropping into the trails around the historic Balmoral estate. In the afternoon you’ll continue on, heading even further on to the mountain village of Tomintoul, the highest village in the entire Highlands.
