Glen Esk - Mount Keen and Mount BattockThe most easterly Munro and Corbett !
Having summits on broad plateaus, Mount Keen and Mount Battock appear very similar when looking on a map. Both are heather clad and not the most inspiring of hills. Yet up close, they are very different !
Mount Keen is one of the easiest Munros.
