Cairngorms walk tipped as top trek

A walk in the Cairngorms National Park has been listed as a great option over the Christmas period for those who fancy donning their boots and burning off the excess calories.

Meall a' Bhuachaille, a 2,657 ft Corbett near Loch Morlich and the Cairngorm Lodge Youth Hostel is the target of the circular trek, which the Guardian featured.

Noting it is among a number of favourite hikes listed in a new book by the Ramblers, the news provider detailed the route, which includes part of the Ryovan Pass and also passes through the Glenmore Forest.

Features of the walk include An Lochan Uaine, whose name literally means "The Little Green Loch" - a name it lives up to with its jade-coloured waters.

The Ryovan Pass also offers access from Glen More towards Bynack Mor, a 3,578 ft Munro.

Visitors to Glen More can enjoy seeing red squirrels and - most appropriately for Christmas - its Reindeer centre.

The area lies on the road from Aviemore to Cairn Gorm, meaning a Christmas break can also include some fun in ski boots.
