What a lovely setting for a nice easy walk . The paths are wwell maintained. The colours of the leaves on the trees we're quite spectacular.

The circular walk around the lake is just lovely, with more varied scenery than one might expect. It's just long enough - about an hour and a half of walking - to feel like you've gotten some good exercise and plenty of fresh air. The trees and foliage and changing views over the water are gorgeous. The path is well maintained. If you only want to see views of the half-sunken castle, turn right down the path when you reach the lake and it's only a short walk along before you get the best views. Don't stick to the wide path when you are nearest the castle - walk down to the shore where there is a narrower path that gives the best views.

We had only one day to have a quick look around in the area of Cairngorm National Park. One of the places we selected was this lake and it was a good choice. If you go to the proper parking area close to the lake, then one has to pay entrance fee. However this is worth it. The lake is beautiful and one has a nice view on the castle ruins on the little island.

We parked in the car park (£1.50 per person) and had a wonderful walk round the Loch. Took about an hour and a half to walk round but there is a proper path. Delightful scenery. There is a small bulding to get coffees etc afterwards - they also sell local handicraft. Well worth visiting this beautiful loch.
