|A leisurely circular walk from the Rothiemurchus visitor centre just North of Aviemore. The first half is along a minor road/path, then head right into the Rothiemurchus forest to Loch Eilean. The walk then heads onwards through the forest onto the B970 which takes you back to the visitor centre.|
Rothiemurchus is situated a mere 30-minute walk from Aviemore or 5 minutes by car, about 2 miles from the main A9 road from Perth to Inverness. PH22 1QH.
|Start to Rothiemurchus path|
Start point: 57.1757 lat, -3.8172 long
From the Rothiemurchus visitor centre, cross over the road (B970) and 200 metres along a concrete cycle path heading south-east on the right side of the road. Turn off of the cycle path and take a right hand turn along a very quiet lane.
|Rothiemurthus path to Lake|
Start point: 57.1688 lat, -3.811 long
Walking along the lane you will meet a parking bay on the right and a sign for the Rothiemurthus Estate walk which heads off along a track through woodland on the right. Head along this path which can be very muddy at times.
|Lake to Milton cottage|
Start point: 57.1635 lat, -3.8208 long
Continue on past the lake on the path through the Rothiemurchus forest until you get to Milton cottage.
|Milton cottage to The Polchar|
Start point: 57.1615 lat, -3.8303 long
Go past Milton cottage and continue on the path until you get to another lane. Turn right here and head along the lane until you reach The Polchar, an activity centre.
|The Polchar to Inverdruie|
Start point: 57.1641 lat, -3.8346 long
At the Polcher, turn right onto the B970 and head along the road which crosses over the Milton burn, back to Inverdruie.
|Inverdruie to End|
Start point: 57.1749 lat, -3.8203 long
Go through Inverdruie (although there is nothing to signify that you are there) and at a fork in the road take the right hand fork back to the Rothiemurchus visitor centre.

I do a lot of solo walking...so always worry about safety and getting lost.....not anymore I don't...!!!!! The guides are always spot on....and that's what I do.just follow the blue spot...!!! Thank you.... It's my favourite app...!!!!
My wife and I did your Petworth and Shimmings Valley walk yesterday. It was absolutely beautiful and enhanced by the wonderful weather. Your instructions were the clearest I have ever used for walking.
Without doubt the best app that I have ever downloaded! - NT
This App is brilliant. It enables you to track your walks and download them for future reference. The Library provides you with a variety of walks and are supported by clear instructions and photographs along the route. This makes them very easy to follow. I have used the App for about two years and have found it invaluable. Should you have any queries about any aspect of iFootpath the support you get is second to none.
Absolutely beautiful walk, and a wonderful app. Thank you so much :)
I want to congratulate you on your web site/app performance, quick, reliable and easy to use. I have similar walking apps with OS Maps and ViewRanger but yours is best.
This app has totally changed my life, i absolutely love it. I did this walk yesterday, what a beautiful walk it is, i thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely do it again, in fact i met an older gentleman who was on his 100 and something time there!! My sister and daughter cant wait to come along. The noise mentioned about the motorway is negligible and for me did not detract from the overall walk at all, the view from the top was stunning!!
So far I have downloaded 5 walks and completed 3 of them, tomorrow will be No 4. I love your website The walk descriptions are the best I have used in the last six years of rambling since I retired. This is a website I would be more than happy to pay a subscription for, instead I'll donate a sum to my favourite charity. THANK YOU.
Have deleted Pokemon Go and downloaded @ifootpathuk which is much more 'me'
I love the illustrated descriptions of each walk section. Really helps to enjoy the walk and get to know something about what I'm seeing. So much better than apps that only provide GPS co-ordinates and no photos or description. Love it!
After trying out numerous other apps I came across this one: way ahead of any of the others in every way. Much more accurate and very easy to use with great features. Would highly recommend it as THE app to use for walking.
Just wonderful, with walks for everyone: the fit, the not-so-fit, short walks, long walks, through woods, up hills (and down).
I highly recommend it, as my mum and I use it to go for walks and finish by eating at a pub. Its detailed and sometimes humorous instructions lead us easily to our destination. Also, to top this, it has interesting facts about the area we're walking in
I don't review much but this app deserves it. Downloaded some really good walks and the combination of the good descriptions and the really useful map of the walk showing where you are make it a brilliant tool. Well done and keep up the good work.
Very enjoyable and well described route. Views over the river from the warren were stunning.
Fantastic walk and amazing views. Great directions though I followed the GPS map mainly
Great walk, instructions were very detailed, perfect!
This may be the best walk I've ever done. It was certainly the best directions.
Even on a cold windy day with it trying to snow this was still an excellent walk. We managed it with our 2 children of 5 yrs and one in a all terain pram (a defo no no with a normal pram). Will be doing this one again in the summer.
Used app while visiting (it was great!)--live in Texas. Thanks!
Your app and walks are a dream to use
Did this walk this morning with our three little girls and we all love it. Great day outdoor!
