While those donning their hiking boots and fleeces may take on some of Britain's highest mountains in the Cairngorms in the months ahead, one walk in the national park has been listed as an outstanding one despite its lack of altitude.

The Scotsman Newspaper's Walk of the Week feature focused on Creag Bheag above Kingussie, calling it one of Scotland's "great little hills", alongside the likes of Criffel, Stac Pollaidh and Arthur's Seat.

While only involving a climb of 860 feet and taking less than three hours, the ascent "must be one of the most satisfying short walks you could go on," the paper stated.

It noted the variety contained in a small area including woods on the lower slopes, heather higher up and the small Loch Gynack in a corrie.

Those looking for higher peaks in the Kingussie area may enjoy climbing Munros, Corbetts and Grahams as well.

A' Chailleach, Carn Sgulain and Beinn Dearg are all over 3,000 ft and can be climbed from the village, as well as via neighbouring Newtownmore.
