Creag Beag Kingussie

There are lots of short walks around us that we often do when we only have a few hours to spare and this is one of them. It can be climbed easily from the Kingussie Golf course carpark, linking two paths to make a good circuit or the longer way which we like. Walking from Newtonmore across a moorland which is now coming alive with birds such as  Lapwing, Curlew, Sky Lark, Meadow Pipit and Oystercatcher. There are often deer around too. The walk takes us along the south shore of Loch Gynack to meet a path up Creag Beag. From the summit you could take another path down to Kingussie and then walk back along the Cycle way but we like to take to the heathery slopes which eventually take us back to our starting point in Newtonmore.

Indoor Climbing Glenmore Lodge

We had a really nice time yesterday at Glenmore Lodge with local children and dads on the Indoor Wall. Some trying it for the first time! Always difficult to break off to take photos but here are a few smiley faces!
