Trail Runs in Cairngorm National Park

VisitScotlandSarahWVisitScotlandSarahW ✩Member, Moderator, VisitScotland Staff
I'm very much an amateur 'runner' having only taken up the pursuit two years ago. It was tough at first but I stuck at it and I now enjoy trail running on easy, relatively flat routes of around 5k. Living in Ballater, within the Cairngorm National Park, I have lots of lovely route choices, from the Deeside Way, Loch Muick and Loch Kinord!

However, it is always nice to explore new options. Can any fellow runners out there suggest equivalent type routes in the wider Cairngorm National Park and Aberdeenshire in general?  B)

A wee pit stop by Loch Kinord for a nice photo op!
