Walk Derry Lodge Cairngorms Scotland

Walk Derry Lodge, Cairngorms, Scotland.

Derry Lodge is one of the gateways to the Cairngorms National Park and a perfect camping spot! You can choose a multitude of different routes to walk, from the Cairngorms munros to low level paths. At least when there's snow on the ground in Scotland, there aren't any midges! The Scots Pine and rugged landscape make this an absolutely fabulous outdoor paradise.

One of the highlights camping at Derry Lodge is the close proximity to the site of a Blackcock lek. The male birds display in the Spring at these leks to attract females to mate. I leave you to judge whether humans act any differently!
