Craig Mellon and Cairn Broadlands Munros

By DundeePhotographics  
Glen Doll lies within the Cairngorms National Park in Scotland at the top of Glen Clova in an area of steep hills, corries and Munros. It includes the Corrie Fee National Nature Reserve which has many endangered plants. The nearest town is Kirriemuir in the south eastern Grampians, and the river which runs through it drains into Glen Clova, which extends towards the coast of Angus. An ancient track, Jock's Road, that starts in the glen ends at Braemar. The origin of the name is that Duncan Macpherson, a rich Scot returned from Australia in the late 19th century, bought the Glen Doll estate, and sought to ban people from crossing his land. John (or Jock) Winter fought him, and the Scottish Rights Of Way And Access Society took a challenge through all the courts to the House of Lords, finally winning the day in 1888
