The roads of General Wade

The section of General Wade's military road from Perth to Inverness which runs from Raliabeag, just outside Newtonmore to Ruthven, near Kingussie is one of the few well preserved parts of the route.

Much of the rest of the route was so well chosen that it has subsequently been built directly over by more modern roads, but the building of the Spey Bridge at Newtonmore, to obviate the need for a ferry between Ruthven and Kingussie has left most of this section intact.

Details of the walk along part of this route can be found in the Newtonmore 'Walks' section of the visitor guide.wadebridge
