Walking and wildlife watchingGaskbeg Hill with a dusting of snow and the height and ZigZag road annotated

Around Gaskbeg there are some great walks, go up the zig-zaggy road to the top of the Gaskbeg hill, it’s quite a walk as its almost a Munro at 2870ft but so worth it when you get to the top as the views are amazing. The photo at the top is taken from the top of the Gaskbeg hill looking east to Newtonmore.

Creag Meagaidh National Nature reserve is only about 14 miles west of Laggan beginning on the shores of Loch Laggan and rising to over 3000ft.  It caters for all types of walkers, way-marked trails making it easy to explore the lower slopes, longer trails into Coire Ardair and for the more adventurous  fantastic Munro’s to conquer! and for the real adrenaline junkies very impressive  ice cliffs to climb in the winter.

Wildlife you might see, the picture above of the deer was taken just off the Glen road, not far from Gaskbeg.  If your walking in the spring time you might hear the harsh calls of a Black Grouse near woods or in the summer you’ll see deer on the high tops and if you are lucky you might see a Golden Eagle soaring over head.
