Starting point Starting point in Aberdeenshire

There are 11 cairns to discover within the Balmoral Estate and this short walk takes in two of them – Prince Albert’s Cairn (aka “the pyramid”!) and Princess Beatrice’s Cairn. A beautiful forestry trail awaits, and after a fairly steady walk uphill you will reach the summit of Creag an Lurachain (442 m /1450 ft) where the pyramid sits. A steeper but shorter descent follows, and a very lovely suspension bridge crossing.

This walk lies within the Cairngorm National Park and visits the lochs and lochans that lie between Loch Morlich and the twon of Aviemore. The route offers a number of alternatives for the return to the start and provides an excellent walk if low cloud is limiting higher level walks in the mountains.
