Ruthven and Glen Tromie Circuit

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

An interesting walk combining the impressive ruins of Ruthven Barracks, open heather moorland with a 'get away from it all' feel, the beautiful Glen Tromie and finally a walk through the RSPB reserve overlooking the Insh Marshes.

Terrain

Paths throughout; some of the old right of way between Ruthven and Glen Tromie is a little overgrown or boggy; the rest of the walk is on a tarred private road and well-waymarked trails. Two streams near the start could be hard to cross in wet weather.

Public Transport

None to start, nearest bus/train Kingussie. Traveline Scotland.
