Aviemore and the Cairngorms - 40 Shorter Walks

Aviemore and the Cairngorms - 40 Shorter Walks

by: Paul and Helen Webster
The Cairngorms are Britain's largest National Park, a place where mountains rise in a wilderness of high plateaux, deep corries and empty glens. But the vast tracts of surviving Caledonian forest, sparkling lochs, heather moors and tumbling rivers also make this fantastic walking country for those who prefer a gentler pace.

This guide features 40 shorter walks, many ideal for families, stretching from the ancient region of Badenoch and the wildlife-packed upper reaches of the Spey Valley, through the outdoor sports hub of Aviemore to Grantown and Tomintoul, then over Ballater and Royal Deeside to Braemar.

Each walk entry begins with distance, time and terrain together with an outline of the walk area followed by route finding instructions and a simple colour sketch map. Colour photographs are also included throughout the book.
