Dun Da-Lamh (Laggan Paths Leafet)

A walk taking in a Pictish Hill Fort and a large expanse of forestry with great elevation looking down three glens. To the west is the Corrieyairack Pass, to the North is Spey Dam, the Mondhliath Mountains  and the River Spey, to the South is the Ben Alder Hills and the Mountain Bike Centre at Wolftrax. The Fort is over 2000 years old and is constructed with 5,000 tons of stone, it is much larger than you might expect. The  size of the fort is 110 metres in length, with width varying between 30 and 75 metres . The ramparts are on average between 4 and 5 metres wide. The local walks leaflet shows the walk from the Wolftrax car park. Many guests walk from the guest house down the glen up to the fort and then around the circuit past the café at Wolftrax and along the Green trail back to the guest house.

Lower Pattack Falls Stroll (Laggan Paths Leafet)

An easy access location with car park and a short walk to the falls. The lower falls are created when the Pattack River has to do a 180 degree turn and drops down over rocks. The walk has two great vantage points to see the falls but the best one is down by the water looking back. It is also a great place to go for a swim if the conditions allow it. This location is only 6 miles away from the guest house and was featured in “Monarch of the Glen” TV series.

Pattack Falls (Laggan Paths Leafet)

The higher Pattack falls is a great little walk and is rewarded with a significant waterfall. The best place to park is in the lay-by near to the large Gallovie Farm entrance on the A86. Follow the track past the barrier and up to the left through yard between farm buildings and through a gate. This is a generally good signposted route with blue signs. After about 20 mins you will begin to hear the falls. Watch out for some construction traffic due to a new Hydro plant.
