Dog walks from Inveruglas

Ruthven and Glen Tromie Circuit - 4hrs - Distance: 10.5km
This is not a boring route, mixing the grand ruins of Ruthven Barracks, open heather moorland with a “chill out and relax” feel, the wonderful Glen Tromie and to end the walk through the RSPB reserve overlooking the Insh Marshes.


Paths all the way; some of the old right of way between Ruthven and Glen Tromie is a little overgrown or boggy; the rest of the walk is on a tarred private road and well-waymarked trails. Two streams near the start could be hard to cross in wet weather. Click here for more details on this walk.

Meallach Mhor and Croidh-la, Glen Tromie - 8hrs - Distance: 22.75km
Not a really obvious or outstanding hill, Meallach Mhor has a great spot to take advantage of the vista. The fastest approach is along Glen Tromie; the walk shown in more detail on the link makes a fuller day by coming back along the heathery ridge over Croidh-la to take advantage of the views.


Long tarmac track through glen; hill section is uneven, often pathless heathery slopes.  Follow this link for more details of the walk.

Insh Marshes - Invertromie Trail - 2hrs - Distance: 4.5km
A wonderful walk investigating the fringe of the Insh Marshes RSPB nature reserve with great views and changeable countryside. Bring binoculars for the three bird hides.


Easy paths to follow with some steps and some rough sections.  Click here for much more detailed information.
