Variety of low level and higher mountain walks in the Cairngorm National Park

Fancy staying in the middle of the Glenmore forest in the Cairngorm National Park surrounded by forests, Loch Morlich, Loch An Eilein and the Cairngorm mountain range? 

Why not join ODL on either or both of these two day walks where we will offer different options , both low and higher level walking options during the day to cater for a variety of walkers (whether you’re a new walker to ODL or experienced ), and socialise in the evenings around a campfire/BBQ and visit one of the many cafes & pubs in the local area! There may be a couple of run options too (5-7.5km).

The actual walks will depend on the weather at the time but we already have a variety of different walks available.  I’ve done smilar events which have had several other leaders attend and every day we did things which catered for everyone.  

This is an arrange your own accommodation weekend but the leader will be staying at the Badaguish Outdoor Centre, offering a variety of options.
