    Glen Doll and Tolmount Circular Walk

    The Glen Doll and Tolmount Circular Walk is an amazing adventure in Cairngorms National Park that will take you into the mountains to bag two munros. While out walking the trail, you will pass through the woodlands of Glen Doll and meander alongside the banks of White Water, before reaching the top of Tolmount and Tom Buidhe for some spectacular views. Be sure to wear proper walking boots that are preferably waterproof, as much of the terrain along the route can be boggy.
