Long single track road in to busy car park. Had to pay. Began at 8am and followed the path down past the toilets and tourist info centre. Signposted to turn right for the Lochnagar route and then followed this through a wee forest. Came upon what looked like a disused, boarded-up bothy and the path for Lochnagar was signed to continue around this while the main path carried on. Began a two km walk that climbed about 250 m and reached a cairn - our path was to the left, dipping and curving back on itself. From here the path became steeper and more step like as the climb took us to around 900 metres. The path continued on but an older one headed off toward the climbing crag and now really climbed 150 m to the first top, at 1050m. The summit was now around 1 km away and had to drop 100 m to make it up again! First cairn at summit was not the true cairn, this was another 400 m away. Trig point on top and table is surrounding mountains. From here it was back to the path at the first cairn, and on to the second Munro about 2.5 km away and easily reached. A cairn on the main path marks the point where you turn to reach the summit. Once back on to the main path we drop down some and cross a river - filled up on water because it was scorching - and then followed the path around the flank of the third Munro. Again, a cairn marks where you turn off to reach he summit. From here you simply follow the path to reach the next two summits, took me around 1 hour to do so. Head down off the fifth over some boulders on a steep descent for around 150 metres then the path is wide and easily visible. Just after a shepherd's hut you one to a cairn. Left takes you to the path at the end of Loch Muick while if you continue straight on - as I did - you circle high over the loch before descending a steepish, scree path and joining the loch about a third of the way in. From here it is around 4 km to the car park. It took two hours to reach the car from the final Munro summit.
