Route Description for Loch An Eilein and Loch Morlich Walk
For those adventurers that enjoy undertaking lengthy journeys through vast swathes of woodland terrain to reach scenic viewpoints, then the Loch An Eilein and Loch Morlich Walk will be an ideal adventure. In addition to conquering the forests of Cairngorms NP, you will also visit several beautifully scenic lochs that will certainly make the effort all the more worthwhile.
Setting out from the trailhead next to the Rothiemurchus Centre, you will head to the southwest through forest and open meadows in order to reach the edge of Loch An Eilein.
