Tomintoul & Glenlivet Walking Festival 2011
Tomintoul and Glenlivet lie on the eastern edge of the Cairngorms, an area less visited than Strathspey and Deeside but one with a wealth of fine scenery and good walking. From the 8th to 12th September the Tomintoul and Glenlivet Walking Festival is being held here, based in Tomintoul, the highest village in the Highlands. Over the five days ten guided hill walks are on offer, including several Munros as well as lower hills, plus easier, lower level walks. On the 11th September I will be leading a walk up Ben Avon from Inchrory in Glen Avon. There will also be social events in the evenings and the whole festival looks an excellent introduction to this part of the Cairngorms and a good chance to meet other walkers. Further details here.
