nice hike with discovery of beautiful waterfalls in a forest landscape and steep

Hike through the woods and around the loch. Parking is located right next to the loch but paying. Otherwise a footpath will take you from Rothiermurchus to Loch.

Trail is in great condition. Most boggy areas have dried up. Approach to Loch Avon is not very suitable to cycle. Our descent off Ben Mc Dui followed a very steep course which crossed numerous bolder fields and was off trail until the valley floor. Possibly unsuitable for dogs or people unsure of foot. Overall an excellent walk. In summer there is no shade so take appropriate care. Lots of wildlife to be spotted en route.

I used to run this as part of the Ballater Highland games. But we use to run straight up it! Good views over Ballater and the Dee

one of my favourite walks! Great for spotting mushrooms and there's even a pretty waterfall. it says the walk should take an hour but at a leisurely pace, it took me 45 minutes.

A good route to include a night by the Loch. The entire route follows a good path except for the descent to loch Dubh which is off trail down a steep slope which impedes progress. Excellent views and a large amount of wildlife about.

Did this as part of the "Cateran Yomp" 54 miles in 24 hours. Fantastic scenery, well signposted and would be nice to do iced a few days rather az an endurance march. Beautiful.prt of the world.

Ground nesting birds until Autumn. Dogs must stay on the lead.

lovely scenic walk, great for beginners, beautiful views. Even in the heavy rain we saw so many dear up close, bridge that is out has been replaced with logs which can be crossed when water isn't too high

Nice little green round route for a view of the Rocky Mountains. Lovely sound of the river for background noise and a great spot for lunch! Just watch out for the bugs

Great walk beautifull views

You can easily extend this walk to take in, Craig Vallich summit and Pannanich Hill before descending into Ballater. Approx 10km, lovely walk.

Very nice ❤️❤️❤️

Nice walk. Easy and accessible. Also has the capability to extend further towards the mountains in a network of trails. Pretty views even on the easier sections.

Dog friendly flat track for a quick walk, good if it’s been lashing it down.

Good walk, Landry track to the top with fab views when you get to the top and it opens out into the moor. Dog friendly.

An excellent trek after stuffing yourself with fish and chips at House of Bruar! Beautiful views of the river and distant Cairngorms. We went on a Friday afternoon and still only saw a handful of other walkers. The way up was a bit tough for my elderly mother, but there are plenty of benches and nice places to rest. Overall a very lovely walk in the woods!

Beautiful vista and lakes not crowded

be warned a footbridge at the end of the path is out and you will need to wade through knee deep freezing water to make the full circuit
