Wee Walks Week

Go Orienteering in Ballater

Try your hand at a bit of map reading and discover the slopes of Craigendarroch Hill as you seek out the letters to reveal a hidden word on our Wee Walks Week Orienteering Trail, designed by Scottish Orienteering.

Orienteering is a great activity for everyone with the map reading offering a mental distraction to the physical effort of exercise. Get the kids away from their screens and pick up the easy to follow Orienteering map to find the control points and unscramble the word.

Maps are available  at the Ballater iCentre in The Old Station,  Station Square, Ballater or download the Map and Guide here.

Guided Walks

Enjoy a wee walk and learn about the wild side of the Park with our Countryside Rangers. 

Or join the Badenoch Great Place Project and explore the prehistory of the area while getting outdoors for a Wee Walk. There will be three guided walks running from Kingussie on Sunday 9th, Laggan on Sunday 16th and Alvie on Sunday 23rd September.
