Route Description

From Auchallater follow the land rover track for 5km up into the glen until a junction just before Lochcallater Lodge. Bear left uphill along a pleasant path slanting rightwards across the slopes of Creag an Loch. If you wish to visit the summit of the Munro Carn an t-Sagairt Mor follow a line of fence posts to the top where the remains of a crashed aircraft lie. From the summit head south east to meet the path again. If you don't visit this top follow the path as it contours around the hillside. Continue up to the col between the Stuic (pronounced Stooee) and Carn a' Coire Bhaidheach. The latter top is a Munro for those interested. From here a pleasant walk along the plateau brings you to Cac Carn Beag, the true summit of Lochnagar. Return via the same route or alternatively head south over Fafernie to meet Jock's Road (not very distinct) which takes you back to Lochcallater Lodge along the shores of Loch Callater.
