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.
Minor road, pathless moor, potentially dangerous river crossings, navigation skills required, boggy in places
There's a school bus connecting Laggan with Newtonmore / Kingussie - school days and times only. Newtonmore itself is well served by buses and trains.
There are no walk reports for this walk. Why not write the first?
