Loch Morlich Circular

This route is truly worthy of 'Hand Picked Trails' status. The beach is rated as one of the best in Scotland and is the only fresh water beach to receive a seaside award by the Keep Scotland Beautiful campaign.

Park at the Water Sports Centre for a small fee or on the road nearby. Try and pick a still, clear winter day if you can for the best views of the Cairngorm mountains.

Start your run on the sand, or along the track between the campsite and the lake. (You are heading away from the Water Sports centre, towards the mountains.) Continue in this clockside direction around the lake, on easy to follow well defined paths which will bring you back to the road. Avoid the road on your way back to the car by following the parallel path on the north side. The main route is very easy to follow, but there is a plethora of extensions possible with a quick glance at the map.  Badaguish Outdoor Centre or the obvious loop south of the Loch are just two possiblities.

Finish your run with a snack at the Water Sports Centre if you fancy one!
