The Old Military Road

Tue, 16 June 2020 @ 10:00 - 14:00

A history walk over an extant section of the Old Military Road, built by the government to quell the Highlands following the 1745 rebellion.

This walk follows the course of the post-1745 Wade Military Road,  as it crossed from Grantown-on-Spey towards Fort George. The first uphill stage provides one of the most attractive approaches to Dava Moor and leads over potentially boggy moorland to the ruined croft at Anabord. A firmer track leads to a short road section and the remains of Heatherbell cottage, following which a further moorland section leads to the Dava Way and the Dava Schoolhouse.
