Cairngorms from Loch Morlich

Loch Morlich is a picturesque loch in the Badenoch and Strathspey area of the Highlands. The loch is located almost 6 miles along the road from Aviemore towards the Cairngorm National Park, and is a popular destination for walkers, who often take the 5.5 km circular route around its banks. A variety of water sports also take place on the loch, including sailing and kayaking.

The Cairngorms are a mountain range in the eastern Highlands of Scotland. The Cairngorms feature the highest, coldest and snowiest plateaux in the British Isles and are home to five of the six highest mountains in Scotland: Ben Macdhui (1309 m), Braeriach (1296 m), Cairn Toul (1293 m), Sgor an Lochain Uaine (1258 m) and Cairn Gorm (1245 m).

These mountains are all Munros, and there are a further 13 mountains with this categorisation across the area, of which another five are among the twenty highest peaks in the country.
