Within easy reach of Crubenbeg Highland Holiday Cottages are 3 magnificent mountain ranges - The Cairngorms, near Aviemore, The Monadliaths & Nevis range. You are spoilt for choice with an excellent selection of Munros, Corbetts & Donalds, all achievable in a comfortable day's outing from here.
Both in the immediate area and further afield there is also a whole host of very fine, lower level walks, forest trails and short walks (notably The 7-mile Wildcat Trail just up the road in Newtonmore). The number one site for walking info is - www.walkhighlands.co.uk
The Badenoch Way runs nearby, the spectacular Corrieyairack Pass is just a short drive away and the more challenging Speyside Way starts (or finishes if you prefer) just 20 minutes up the road in Aviemore.
We're more than happy to provide you with maps, routes and guidance. If you wish, we can also arrange for the services of an experienced guide for the more adventurous walks and for small group or individual tuition in Mountaineering, Winter Skills, Climbing & Ice Climbing.
Drying out and storing your kit at the end of each day is no problem; we have good facilities for both.
Dun-da-Lamh Fort- An impressive fort with massive ramparts on a hill 2 miles south west of Laggan. Pronounced 'dun da larve' its name means 'fort of the two hands'. C 500 AD. Superb views. 45 minute walk.
Meall Chuaich is a lumpy Munro which lacks many distinctive features; it is however a good viewpoint for upper Badenoch and Strathspey.
Though a rather rounded and undistinguished hill, Meallach Mhor occupies a fine position and is a grand viewpoint. The quickest approach is along Glen Tromie; the route described here makes a fuller day by returning along the heathery ridge over Croidh-la to maximise the views.
Car na caim The east side of Drumochter pass is bounded by a steeply rising moor, riven by gullies. Suprisingly given its unimpressive appearance, there are two Munros on the plateau above. The hills themselves lack interest but this walk gives a real feeling of space. The tops are the haunt of dotterel and ptarmigan.
This long hillwalk includes ascents of three of the four Monadh Liath Munros. The hills themselves are undistinguished (particularly Carn Sgulain), but Carn Dearg has a feeling of remoteness and the long trek across the plateau from this peak to the others has a feeling of space, given favourable weather.
Maol Creag an Loch 875m (2871ft)
Geal Charn is the westernmost of the Monadh Liath and so far from the other three Munros that it is usually ascended on its own. Its eastern corrie is attractive but it is otherwise lacking in features; however it does have a feeling of remoteness.
