Today's walk from Grantown to Boat of Garten sees you enter Strathspey and the Cairngorm Mountains start to dominate the view to your left.

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).
