Loch an Eilein, Rothiemurchus

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Loch an Eilein is an extremely beautiful sheet of water, reflecting the magnificent pines of Rothiemurchus Forest in which it lies; a ruined island castle is the final touch to help make this one of the most popular short walks in Scotland. The route is described here with an optional extension around the quieter Loch Gamhna; another possible extension is to ascend Ord Ban for wonderful views.

Terrain

Good footpaths round Loch an Eilein; the optional extension around Loch Gamhna is muddy in places and is not maintained.

Public Transport

Start

Loch an Eilein car park (charge per person). Map and directions.
