Laggan to Newtonmore

The fifth stage of the East Highland Way climbs gently into the remote moorland of Strath an Eilich where you are surrounded by hills, passing Dalnashallag Bothy before following the river to descend towards Newtonmore where there are plenty of accommodation options and facilities. The route has several burn/river crossings in Glen Banchor; these become impassable when in spate - in such conditions, use the alternative easier southern route described in paragraph 8.

Terrain

Minor road, pathless moor, potentially dangerous river crossings, navigation skills required, boggy in places

Public Transport

There's a school bus connecting Laggan with Newtonmore / Kingussie - school days and times only. Newtonmore itself is well served by buses and trains.
