Glentanar Estate Circular Walk
The Glentanar Estate Circular Walk is a laidback excursion in Cairngorms National Park that will take you through the forested grounds of an estate once under control of the Marquis of Huntly. While out walking the trail, you will meander along densely wooded pathways and enjoy views of the nearby Water of Taner, as you loop around several hills for the return leg of the walk. Although it is an intermediate length adventure, this is still a great trail for families to explore.
