The Wildcat Trail

The trail passes along the banks of three rivers, including the great River Spey, through a gorge, past a waterfall. 

Magnificent views of the Cairngorm & Monadhliath Mountains. 

A wonderfully varied, waymarked path encircling the village.









 The Trail is suitable for the reasonably fit and is carefully waymarked throughout,

There are 10 different access points, so if you prefer, you can walk sections rather than the whole circuit.

Dogs are welcome if kept under control.  The path crosses crofting land and stock may be present.

There are also stiles, gates & stepping stones along the way.

Get your fully illustrated Wildcat Trail Brochure from  The Wildcat Centre, beside the Village Hall on the Main Street

or at the Post Office when the Centre is closed.  There are large scale plans of the Trail on granite blocks in the Village

Square, at the Clan Macpherson Museum and at the northern end of the road through the village.  

The Brochure also gives details of 10 other routes with Newtonmore as the starting point.

You may also catch a glimpse of one of the village's painted wildcats.....
