Long Description:

Mayer, from the Gaelic m'aighear, meaning my delight, or magh, the plain, is a mountain 3,045 feet or 928 metres high in the eastern Grampian Mountains between the Angus glens of Prosen and Doll.

The mountain is situated two miles west of its neighbour, Driesh, and the two are usually climbed together from Glen Doll. Both are considered as twin peaks, but Mayer is more shapely than the rounded Driesh, and can also be seen from the lowlands to the south-east as a blunt cone.

The summit is a small cairn which is perched above the steep south side that sits above the head of Glen Prosen. The fine looking Corrie Fee eats into the mountain's north-eastern slope.

STEEPNESS: A strong pull up the Kilbo Path from Glen Doll, and also through Corrie Fee, leads to a more manageable slope up to the summit. There are only two steeper sections from the top of the Kilbo Path.

TERRAIN: A path has been carved out of the grassy, rocky terrain all the way to the summit via the Kilbo Path route with only one muddy patch on the col before the climb to the summit.

ACCESSIBILITY: Both routes from the north-east at the Glen Doll car park (small charge), along the Kilbo Path and Corrie Fee are around four miles and the most popular.There is a much longer route up Glen Prosen which reaches the other side of the KIlbo Path which comes up from the south.

NAVIGATION: The Kilbo Path route eases navigation to the summit in mist. There is very little trace of a path however from the top of Corrie Fee to the north.

DANGER: Care required on the steeper sections of the path, particularly heading up Corrie Fee.

Altitude in Feet: 3045
