Glen Tanar National Nature Reserve (SNH)

Glen Tanar, Aboyne

This superb glen has some of the finest native pinewood in Scotland. Scottish crossbill, capercaillie, black grouse and goshawk all breed here. Red squirrels are common. The special pinewood plants include twinflower and the delicate orchid creeping ladies tresses. On the higher ground look out for hen harrier, merlin and golden eagle. Mount Keen (939m) at the head of the glen holds ptarmigan. Visitor centre at Braeloine, with ranger service, network of trails.
