For most walkers, Braemar is synonymous as the entry to the heart of the Cairngorms. Plenty of long distance, multi-day car-free walking options start here, heading deep into the many lonely glens of the National Park, before emerging a day or two later, tired, smelly and happy.
One of the nearest Munros to Braemar, Beinn a' Bhuird provides a great taste of the region. It's possible to complete it in one long day, but also enjoyable over two days, camping out on the hills.
