Muir of Dinnet National Nature Reserve

Deeside Tourist Route

Stretch your legs or stop for a picnic at the stunning Muir of Dinnet NNR. Located in the Cairngorms National Park, the reserve includes woodland, heathland and a sparkling loch to explore. There are four great trails to choose from, including an easy 1.3 km stroll to arguably the reserve’s most famous feature – the other-worldy Burn o’ Vat. This giant pothole was carved out during the Ice Age and you can step inside for up-close views of the immense chasm. Other trails include the Loch Kinord Trail (6 km), Parkin's Moss Trail (3 km) and Little Ord Trail (4 km).
