The Old Logging Way

This route from Aviemore to Glenmore, is a really beautiful ride through the trees.

Old Logging Way

START On the B970 near the Rothiemurchus Farm Shop

DISTANCE 5.5 miles one way

TIME 0.5 hours

PARKING Car Park on opposite side of the road from the farm shop

ROUTE CONDITIONS Mostly level gravel cycle path, with some very short sections of road

REFRESHMENTS Glenmore Visitor Centre

TOILETS Glenmore Visitor Centre



We used this route as our way to visit the Reindeer Centre, from our base at Loch an Eilein. We found this a really nice way to get there, and being an out and back route, you can of course decide how far you want to go.

As well as the Reindeer Centre, you can also stop at the beautiful Loch Morlich, where there are numerous benches and peaceful spots for a lunch or snack stop.

There are a few short sections of road at the start, but the route is mostly on well surfaced paths.

Tot Tips:

This route to Glenmore specifically features the Reindeer centre as a fun family rest point, however, there is lots to do in the area, and Loch Morlich is a great place for a picnic.
