This circular woodland walk explores the natural Scots pines of Anagach Woods in the northern foothills of the Cairngorms National Park.
Anagach Woods surrounds the town of Grantown-on-Spey and offers some of the finest low-level walking in the Highlands. There are plenty of waymarked trails through the woods and this walk takes in a short section of the River Spey before looping back to its start point.
All routes in Anagach Woods are clearly marked and walks range from 1-4 hours long. You may be lucky enough to see capercaillie, crossbills or red squirrels, and while you’re in the area we recommend a visit to the RSPB osprey centre at nearby Loch Garten.
And, of course, the whiskey distilleries!
TOG VERDICT: A beautiful walk in a beautiful part of a beautiful National Park. There really is nowhere in Britain quite like the Cairngorms National Park, with its magical ancient woodlands, diverse wildlife and colossal mountains.
