Tips

  • Katherine Moore

    Perfect for beginners due to its shallow water by the sandy shore, Loch Morlich is a beautiful place to come for a dip in the summer.

    Enjoy your time here, thanks to easy access through local parking and the beach cafe (the Boathouse Cafe). There's also a watersports provider here if you fancy something more adventurous.

    If you're looking for a secluded and private swim, avoid peak season and perhaps look for alternatives to the main beach to the east.

    Loch Morlich is a stunning location set in the Cairngorms National Park, it is simply stunning, a beautiful sandy beach enclosed in a forest with a crystal clear Lake.

    If you do the purple route, go clockwise as the ascent is much easier on a gravel path.
