Comments: When Queen Victoria bought Balmoral Castle, she and her husband began a practice of commissioning cairns to mark important events, usually the marriage of their children. When Victoria's husband Albert died, she commissioned a huge, impressive memorial for him on top of one of the hills on the estate, in the shape of a pyramid. 

This walk takes in most of these cairns in what is still a manageable route even for someone who doesn't normally do any hillwalking. It also starts at a good carpark, includes a great view of Balmoral Castle, and features a great cafe near the end.
