Mount Keen summit

Aboot Scotland - A Scottish Sunrise

Ever wanted to watch a sunrise from a mountain top? This tour takes in the most spectacular sunrise from the perfect spot. Leaving at midnight, we'll climb the most easterly munro in Scotland, Mount Keen, for a view you'll never forget!

We leave the car park and walk up Glen Mark. This flat section follows the Water of Mark and passes the Queens Well after around 5km. The well commemorates the visit by Queen Victoria in 1861. The path crosses two streams and steepens as we head onto more exposed higher ground. Our route heads up the shoulder of Mount Keen where we will reach the summit. First success of the day, and even if the weather doesn’t cooperate, at least a Scottish Munro is climbed!

Once on the top, we will get wrapped up in warm clothes and get tucked into our food supplies so ensure you bring plenty of both. I will provide hot drinks, some background music or if you’d prefer to sit and watch in silence as the sky changes from dark blue to orange and wait for that intense disc of light to appear, meanwhile feel the warmth on our skin and a wave of euphoria, then that’s fine too!

Once we decide to leave we’ll return via the ascent route and see the beautiful countryside in full light.
