The Wildcat Trail is a 10km waymarked path encircling  the village of Newtonmore, 

in the Cairngorms National Park.   

    
 






The Trail passes along the banks of three separate rivers, including the Spey, across moorland & through areas of well-established and more recently planted trees.



It goes through a gorge and past a beautiful   
  waterfall.  There are magnificent views 
of   the Cairngorm and Monadhliath               
       Mountains from many sections of the path.



The path was named The Wildcat Trail because of the long association of Newtonmore and the surrounding area with the Scottish Wildcat.  

The animal is known to breed and live in the area,  both Clan Chattan and Clan Macpherson have the Scottish Wildcat as their emblem.


           There are interpretative plaques sited at            
                 various viewpoints round the Trail. 



 


                                 The path is accessible to the reasonably 
fi
t.                                                                                                                                      There are stiles and gates to negotiate 
       and you 
may encounter stock where
            the Trail crosses
 crofting land.
