Aviemore Walking

Aviemore Walking is one of the most popular activities with so much of the Cairngorms National Park to explore on the doorstep.┬áThe sheer size, scale and remoteness of the Cairngorms make them one of the most dramatic and harsh mountain environments in Britain, a challenge to even the most seasoned hillwalkers. However, you don’t need to undertake a serious expedition to enjoy the hills of the Cairngorms. Five of the Six highest mountains in Britain can be found nearby Aviemore and can be tackled using basic equipment and good navigational experience. From Aviemore walking you can travel along the Speyside Way towards Boat of Garten, explore the Craigellachie Nature Reserve which offers beautiful views over Aviemore, walk around the 50km network of carefully maintained paths on nearby Rothiemurchus Estate, and meander up the Old Logging Way to Glenmore and the foot of the Cairngorm Mountains. The Aviemore Paths Leaflet is a useful download and can be picked up in the Aviemore Visitor Information Centre on Grampian Road.
Ranger Services at Rothiemurchus and Glenmore offer guided walks and events throughout the year.
Walk Highlands is very useful website with detailed walking routes documented.

The following businesses can offer guided walks and advice on getting out and about around Aviemore. If you are travelling by public transport see our ‘How to get here’ page.
