très bonne randonnée : en forêt au début puis dégagée sur la partie somitale. A faire en famille.

This was a fantastic trail. I normally prefer summits with views but this hike had everything else. It was well marked with varied terrain, patches of incline as well as sections with and without shade. There were a couple of areas where the trail was a bit waterlogged but it was super easy to go over or around - definitely a well maintained trail. The landscape is just gorgeous. Walked to the trailhead from Aviemore bus stop and got back within 2 hours, I should note I only did the loop and did not finish the out and back but, would definitely recommend it!

Au début, marche dans les bois, vues sur deux petits lacs et Aviemore. On a en fond sonore le bruit de l'autoroute. Il faut poursuivre, dès que l'on monte sur la lande les paysages sont plus beaux. A l'arrivée vue sur deux lacs sur l'autre côté de la montagne. Nous avons prolongé de quelques autres collines.

Great quick hike- walking distance from An Aghaidh Mhòr train station and Cairngorm Hotel. Great views from summit.

Great views! My mom and I walked this trail in June and the weather was great for it. Definitely recommend it. It’s within walking distance from the Cairngorm hotel too (which I also recommend).
