Put the lockdown walking to good use with Clan’s Lochnagar challenge!

Join us in July for this beautiful 12 mile walk, up one of Scotland’s most stunning Munro mountains all the while helping to raise money for Clan. Experience breath-taking views over Loch Muick and once further up enjoy lunch at the summit. You’ll have stunning views of Glen Muick on the way back down and pass the Royal Lodge of Glas-allt-Shiel on your way. It's not to be missed!

Soak in all the wildlife and history on this amazing hike with scenic views of Scotland while helping Clan to raise funds for those affected by cancer across the North East, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.


We will meet at the Spittal of Glen Muick visitor car park at approx. 8am, with the challenge taking roughly 7-9 hours.

Joining details and kit lists will be sent to you prior to the walk, as well as information on how you can bag 15% discount on goods from the online Hillgoers shop (except gift vouchers, sale items and books). Walkers under the age of 18 must have parental permission and be discussed at the time of your booking. Dogs are welcome to join us but must be well behaved and follow the countryside code, see Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

In recognition of our environmental impact during this event, we have set up a Clan grove where you will be given the opportunity to plant a tree. This could be in someone's memory, to mark your achievement, or as a way of supporting climate change and wildlife support . It is completely optional at a cost of £6 per tree, and more information on this will be made available should you be interested.

The Hillgoers team will minimise the risks as far as possible and clients can of course choose not to participate in any activity they are not comfortable with. By agreeing to participate, clients accept the risks associated with the activity.

The Hillgoers team are responsible for the safety of all participants during the activities. By agreeing to participate and to manage the risks, the participants understand they must adhere to instructions given by the Hillgoers team.

Details taken at the time of booking are for essential health and safety purposes and will be shared responsibly between Clan and Hillgoers.

COVID-19 - Reducing Transmission

Should lockdown restrictions be in place at the time of this event, it will be rescheduled to a date that is safe to do so, and that is in line with the Scottish Government guidance. Walkers will be notified as soon as possible should there be any change to the event. Hillgoers have put in place guidelines that all clients are required to follow, to minimise the risks of COVID-19 transmission. These will mainly be the following:

  • Follow Government guidelines - www.gov.scot/collections/coronavirus-covid-19-guidance
  • Please do not attend any Hillgoers events if you are showing any symptoms, have been asked to self-isolate or suspect you have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19.
  • Your Mountain Leader / instructor will social distance at all times unless there is an emergency requiring first aid, where they will wear the required PPE.
  • You must all carry a face covering should close contact be required.
  • If someone starts to show symptoms or is contacted to say they have been in close contact with a suspected case, the casualty will be escorted back to safety and the event may need to be cancelled.
  • All Hillgoers guided walks, navigation tuition and Duke of Edinburgh’s Award expeditions will be managed with extra safety precautions and fully COVID-19 risk assessed.
  • Hillgoers accepts no liability if someone in the group breaks social distancing rules or if you think you caught COVID-19 during one of our events.
  • Terms and Conditions apply.
