Derry Lodge and the Linn of Dee

This walk from the Linn of Dee follows Glen Lui as far as Derry Lodge, an imposing but disused shooting lodge in a beautiful pinewood with great views of the Cairngorm mountains. A walk with open vistas and a wilderness feel yet with the ease and safety of a clear vehicle track to follow.
