The trails from Allt Mor take you through a wonderful mix of tall, thick pines and young saplings, with a tumble of heather, blueberry and juniper on the ground. Everywhere there's the chatter of running water, tumbling down from the mountains.
Explore the atmospheric pine woods on an easy-going trail around Glenmore’s former shooting lodge.
Mostly wide, uneven gravel surface with some potentially muddy patches. Includes a couple of short fairly steep slopes and some low branches.
Allow 1½ hours
Look out for some small headstones by the path near the lodge, which mark the graves of dogs buried here a century ago by the Dennistoun family. The family ran a shipping business in Glasgow and loved staying in Glenmore on shooting parties.
If the forest works its magic and you’d like to see bit more, follow the blue markers up the glen when you meet the Ryvoan Trail until you reach the sheltered beauty spot of Lochan Uaine (The Green Lochan). Going there and back will add 1½ miles / 2.4 km onto the trip.
Please note, the upper section of this trail is closed between Utsi's Bridge and Cairngorm Mountain Base Station due to landslips.
A taste of forest and mountain as you follow the tumbling Allt Mor burn. Breathtaking views over Glenmore and Strath Spey.
Firm gravel surface, with some narrow, uneven and rocky sections. Long steep slope for half a mile. Includes some narrow openings, long sections of boardwalks, and a road crossing.
Allow 2½ hours
Look out for the Scots pine saplings growing in the gully of Allt Mor (The Big Stream). They've chosen a risky home! Swollen by heavy rain or snow, the stream can tumble large rocks down from the mountains, changing the shape of the glen overnight.
The trail takes you to the Coire Cas car park at the foot of Cairngorm: there's a bus service from there back to Glenmore, but check times at Traveline Scotland before you set out.
There are public toilets and a café at Glenmore Forest Park Visitor Centre.
