Download GPS FileRothiemurchus Forest via Balvattan from Coylumbridge
This very short family walk gives very impressive views onto the northern Cairngorm range and the imposing entrance to the Larig Ghru valley. Despite its short distance, this walk gives a real sense of remoteness and adventure making it an ideal all year round walk for the family. It is always within fairly easy range of Coylumbridge village near Aviemore, but make sure you and the family are well prepared for rapid change in weather and temperature.
