Cairngorms forest is Walk of the Week
Bookmark and Share
A low-level route in the Cairngorms has been listed as Walk of the Week in the Scotsman newspaper.

Eschewing the high mountains of the national park for pine woodlands of Speyside, the walk takes in a two-mile stretch of forest near Carrbridge.

One of the noted features of the venture is a view of an old bridge over the River Dulnain, which was damaged in a severe flood in the 19th (UC?)century and is off-limits to walkers, but remains standing.

The paper also noted how walkers are likely to see red squirrels on the trek, which lasts for just an hour and is marked on the Landranger 36 Ordnance Survey map

People donning fleeces for the autumn may wish to stick to lower-level routes in the colder weather.

However, the recent extension of the national park may tempt some to climb mountains recently brought within its borders, such as Beinn Udlamainn, Braigh Coire Chruinn-Bhalgain or the Sow of Atholl.
