5 Great Walking Routes that Capture the Essence of the Northern Cairngorms.
Wilderness Guide, Peter Grant shares his Top 5 Walking Routes in the Cairngorms and we start with Sgoran Dubh Mor and Sgor Gaoithe.
I love the Cairngorms. I particularly love these 5 walking routes as they highlight the relationship of the mountains with the strath of the River Spey. In this post I’m covering a fantastic Cairngorms walk, starting in the forest of Glen Feshie.
With reasonable fitness and the right conditions, each of these five walks is easily accomplished at any time of year. Each walk takes you into remote country so you’ll need a good working knowledge of navigation. If you’re trying these in winter, you’ll also need an understanding of avalanche risk assessment. To keep safe, use up to date weather and avalanche forecasts.
