Details: Track log of a circuit around the 4 Munros to the west of Glenshee. Start point is on the A93 at the entrance gate to Baddoch farm. Route up onto the An Socach ridge is via the landrover track past Baddoch farm and then up into Coire Fhearneasg. From the summit of An Socach head south, fairly steep initially, then head over to Carn Bhinnein. From there it is a fairly easy high level traverse over Carn a'Gheoidh and Carn nan Sac to The Cairnwell. Return north round the top of the Ski centre to Carn Aosda the last Munro of the circuit. Follow the north ridge of this hill over Carn Chrionaidh to return to the start point. Time 8hrs, distance 26k, ascent approx 1400m. Note done mid winter when ground was frozen, some of the route could be a bit boggy at other times.
