    The Rothiemurchus Forest hides the wonderful Loch an Eilein, a freshwater lake that has a long history. A limestone kiln stands on the loch edge and logs were floated downstream via this lake. There are also associations with the infamous Rob Roy, who is said to have used the loch for cattle rustling.

    Perhaps the most incredible feature of the lake is its little island, housing the remains of a 14th-century castle.
