A fun route with great variety and beautiful scenery – 12 or 24 miles. Loch an Eilean means loch of the island in Gaelic and its castle dates from the 12th century. The visitor centre here provides general information about the Cairngorms, plus toilets and a car park. Not far away are Rothiemurchus’s Scots pine woods which not only reflect how Scotland used to be but also offer stunning beauty as they expand naturally due to fencing that keeps deer out of this protected area. Places to eat can be found at The Boathouse Restaurant at Loch Insh (100 metres off-route), Kincraig village (slightly off route) has a small shop, hotel, plus excellent B&Bs; there is also a sailing school and sandy beach nearby for those wanting more than just food!
