Druim an Aird walk. Approx 2200 metres. Some uphill. Duration 1-1.5 hours. Ascent: c. 100metres.
2022 update. There is only 1 sensible way at present to walk to the Druim An Aird site ruins. From the car park – take the forest track beside the aqueduct. This route follows past the cottage on forest track for 1.5 miles, turning left at the quarry to top of road. Loop path round ruins of Druim an Aird Village then return back the same way. N.B. The path downhill returning to the aqueduct is very boggy and difficult to navigate. Sensible footwear required.

Park at Gorstean car park, take forest road through gate onto loop section. The signage for going on the uphill section has been removed by FLS and the path is difficult to see and access.
Blackwood Walk. Approx 8000 metres.
Very steep sections - not for the faint hearted.
- Laggan to Newtonmore via Glen Banchor - 9 ½ miles or 6 ½ with a car at each end. Terrain mostly tracks, gentle inclines, one boggy area, and 2 burns to cross.
- Garva Rd past Spey Dam and Loch toward Melgarve -around 7 miles each way to do the whole walk - tarred road all the way.
- Falls of Pattack - approx. 2 miles with many possibilities to extend if you wish. It is a short and easy walk to the waterfall and it is a spectacular sight.
- Coire Ardair or Creag Meagaidh - 9 miles on a steady uphill - dramatic but not difficult.
- Dun da Lambh - 6 mile walk through the forest going steadily uphill with a much steeper area near the end finishing at the ruins of the Pictish fort with wonderful views over the valley.
