Having driven pastany times, this was the first time I stopped here.

This is a very easy walk following a clear path. You can see the mine building and car park at all times. The path follows a clear stream.

It was fun to have a look around the building before heading back.

We used this walk as a way to break up the drive between Aviemore and Aberdeen. I plan to do this again in future.
