The walking is easy and passes through farmland and uses old railway tracks to bring you to the sleepy village of Boat of Garten.  On the trail you will pass through Abernethy forest; a relict of the ancient Caledonian pine forests.  Look out for bird and wildlife as you walk, such as red squirrels, pine martins, and opsrey overhead (the RSPB Loch Garten Osprey Centre is nearby).

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
