The walk today is, arguably, one of the most popular of all the through-routes in the Cairngorm National Park. Your Club last did this walk in June 2007. The walk is a long through-one, but basically on the flat, but members who require a shorter, or alternative walk, please indicate your intentions with your committee member in charge of the bus.
Leave the bus at the north side of the Linn o’ Dee bridge (NGR 063 897), just before (>200m) the car park, and head W’wards for about 3 miles to reach White Bridge. Cross this bridge and head SW’wards for the path split at the Geldie Burn, after a further 1.75miles. Do not cross this burn, but take the track W’wards along the north side of the Geldie Burn for about 6.5miles to gain the footbridge over the spectacular River Eidart Falls. Cross this footbridge and continue W’wards for about 3 miles, towards Creag Bheag, where our route swings N’wards into the upper reaches of Glen Feshie. The route follows the east side of the River Feshie for about 3 miles to eventually arrive at the Ruigh-aiteachain bothy. Continue, from the bothy, N’wards for about 3 miles to eventually arrive at the carpark, about a mile on the north side of Achlean farm, just before the trees. Your bus will be conveniently parked here. (NGR 956 097).
Walking distance approx. 20 miles
Bus departs at 7.00pm.
