25/06/2014 - For me Glen Banchor has it all. Big hills, little hills, gentle walks up the glen or just plock yourself down by the river and watch the world go by. Easy access from Newtonmore. A road leads from the village to a car parking spot in the glen. It's a lovely quiet stroll along the side of river, passing by hut circles and deserted townships to reach this cairn at the west of the glen. The cairn is grassed over and not much to look at but it's in a great location. Clear line of sight down the River Calder to the east and also Strath an Eilich to the South. Well worth a visit just for the peace and quiet of the place.
