From Loch Morlich, this climb goes up gradually through the forest. There are tough sections in between but generally doable. At the fork in the one-way road, it opens up and you have nice views of the lake and the Aviemore area. At the top there is a large car park where walkers leave. The restaurant offers a nice view and a fireplace. The climb is well worth it if you are in the area.

Vanuit Loch Morlich gaat deze klim via het bos geleidelijk omhoog. Er zit pittige stukken tussen maar over het algemeen goed te doen. Bij de splitsing van eenrichtingsverkeer wordt het open en heb je mooi uitzicht op het meer en de omgeving van Aviemore. Boven aangekomen zit een grote parkeerplaats waar de wandelaars vertrekken. Het restaurant biedt een leuk uitzicht en een haard. De klim is zeer de moeite waard wanneer je in de buurt bent.

A nice climb on a wide road, halfway up it becomes open and there is a nice view. Due to the hairpin bends, the descent is challenging

Een leuke klim over brede weg, halverwege wordt het open en is er een mooi uitzicht. Door de haarspeldbochten is de afdaling uitdagend
