Route Outline

This Cairngorm National Park walk explores the hills rising to the west of the A9 at the Falls of Truim. In spate the falls are worth a visit in their own right although the climb up to the viewpoint on Creagan an Fhithich adds another dimension to the walk with fine views across the upper reaches of the Spey Valley. The start is the small carpark signed off the A9 just under five miles south of Newtonmore.
