Inchrory and Strath Avon circuit, near Tomintoul
This long circuit visits the lonely upper reaches of Strath Avon, far into the mountains, before returning via the extensive grouse moors. The route passes through very remote country, far from help, though most of it follows good tracks. The pathless section can be avoided if necessary which makes this also a good route for mountain bikers.
Mostly on good tracks, with pathless moorland section between Drum Loin and Cnap Chaochan Aitinn. Burn of Loin is unbridged and could be impassable in spate.
None to start, bus to Tomintoul.
Parking off minor road south west of Tomintoul.
