A wonderfuly varied waymarked path encircling the village.
It passes along the banks of three rivers, including the great River Spey, through a gorge, past a waterfall.
Magnificent views of theCairngorm & Monadhliath Mountains.
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.
