Glen Clova hills - Driesh, Mayar and Ben TirranNorth of Forfar and Kirriemuir, Old Jock's road (a drove road) runs along The Angus Glens of Clova and Doll to Braemar. The Munro twins of Driesh and Mayar look down over their northern winter corries to the valley floor with Ben Tirran on the opposite side of the Glen.
The route up Driesh and Mayar is one of the easiest Munro days.
