Walking in the Cairngorms National Park

Easter Corrie is a superb base for walkers. From a short stroll around local woodland paths to challenging expeditions into the central Cairngorms, there is something here for everyone.

The Glenlivet Crown Estate is one of the most accessible in Scotland. There are over one hundred miles of waymarked walking trails varying in length from two to seven miles. These give walkers access to many places of interest and viewpoints on the Estate. Our local Corbetts (mountains over 2,500 feet) will provide more energetic walkers with unparalleled views of the central Cairngorms and Moray Firth.

Smugglers' Trails

These are the Whisky Roads formerly used by smugglers exporting illicit whisky on hardy ponies over 200 years ago. They lead to Braemar, Nethybridge, Strathdon and over the Cromdale Hills to Grantown. All are spectacular hill walks with exciting views of the Cairngorms and romantic connotations of days gone by.

Hill Walking

Committed hill walkers have the entire north eastern section of the Cairngorm National Park at their disposal. They will be spoilt for choice with over thirty Munros (mountains over 3,000 feet) to explore including many of the highest mountains in Scotland.

Near at hand are Ben Avon and Beinn a' Bhuird, a vast artic plateau to the south west of Tomintoul. A short drive to the west gives access to the 4,000 foot mountains of Cairn Gorm, Ben Macdui, Cairn Toul and Braeriach whilst to the south Lochnagar beckons from Deeside.
