Forest, Moorland, Woodland
The Craigellachie Nature Reserve is immediately west of Aviemore and is accessed via a tunnel under the A9. The lower area is birch forest with some small lochans. There is a good path leading up 400M or so to an intricate open area around Lochan Dubh. A good area but badly effected by bracken in the summer.
