From Crathie take the B976 road Gairnsheil Lodge and on to Tomintoul. ( Nice old fire station café)

Take the ‘Lazy Duck’ road through Nethy Bridge, then B970 to Coylumbridge.
Turn left at Coylumbridge and head towards the Cairngorm ski centre and Glenmore Caravan and Camping Site. This is one of the best campsites and a great place to spend a few days. Lots to do, Loch Morlich (highest beach in Scotland), cycling, husky trail, sailing kayaking, canoeing, funicular railway.
Aviemore is just a short drive away with lots of shops, swimming pool, steam train, osprey watching.
Take the B970 to Kingussie and Highland Wildlife Park and the A86 towards Loch Laggan.
Carry on to Spean Bridge and A82 to Fort William and Glen Nevis Camp site. This too is a brilliant campsite and a great base for a few days.
Loads to see and do – Jacobite steam railway to Mallaig (whole day) awesome trip! Walk up Glen Nevis or the Ben itself!
Back up to A82 to Loch Lochy and Fort Augustus follow Loch Ness to Drumnadrochit and Urquhart Castle and on to Inverness.
