Walking

Munro's and Corbetts

The area around Laggan and the wider Cairngorms contains many Munro & Corbett walks, as does the area just west at Moy/Creag Meagaidh. The excellent Walkhighlands Website provides lots of routes and information on these.

In addition to the munro and corbett trails there are lots of lower level and forest based walks to enjoy in the region, many of these are way marked.

Frank Bruce Sculpture Trail 

 www.frank-bruce.org.uk

This is a short trail walk in woodland and a old walled garden, where you will find the scultures of Frank Bruce set in amongst the natural carpets of mosses, lichens and ferns, with the walled garden that belonged to Invereshie House. The local leaflet we have for the walk shows the route that you take and location of each of the forest sculptures. It’s only 1.km in length but it’s a good stretch of the legs on route to enjoying a walk around Loch an Eilein or Loch Morlich

Glenmore Forest Park Nr Aviemore

Link to Forestry Scotlands site

The area was once the home of families who lived in farmsteads, they farmed sheep and cattle that grazed on the hills in summer. Remains of some of their dwellings can be found at Beglan which is to the north of Loch Morlich.

There are now a number of brilliant walks in and around the Glenmore Forest, some commence from the Glenmore Centre, where there is a good café and very helpful Foresty Commission staff.  Our favourite one is the Ryvoan Trail, you visit the “Green Lochan” and it’s a great loop walk. It’s about 3.5 miles/5.8km and you should allow 2 1/2hrs for the walk and it is quite strenuous, there are some steep climbs and rough ground.

The local leaflet for the Glenmore Forest details the various walks,
