Accessed right from the heart of Aviemore, Craigellachie is a nature reserve with several lochans, beautiful birchwoods, steep crags and excellent views of the Cairngorms. The uppermost section can be omitted to reduce the grade to 1 and the time to an hour; the walk gives a chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the town and to experience a glimpse of the wild Cairngorms. The crags are home to peregrine falcons.
Clear paths throughout. Optional section up to viewpoint is steep, rough and rocky.
Bus or train to Aviemore.
