Glen Lui

There are many different types of blog posts I’ll be sharing on here. One of them will be focusing on my favourite landscape photography locations.


On this occasion, I’ll be looking at part of the Cairngorms National Park, Glen Lui. Glen Lui is one of many, many stunning Glens this country has to offer. Starting of at a spectacular Gorge at Linn of Dee, the path then takes you through Caledonian Pine and alongĀ  the Glen to Derry Lodge. Once here, a trip to Bob Scotts bothy is always tempting – a hospitable bothy for those seeking shelter on the edge of the Cairngorm Mountains. After Derry Lodge, you come to Lui Water, a welcome spot for a break (perhaps some hot drinks and food!) and a cracking wild camping spot with good access to more than a few fine Mountains. you are then being spoiled for choice whether to head through more Caledonian Pine in Glen Derry to the North, eventually reaching Loch Etchachan and Loch A’an or Glen Luibeg to the West, which will lead you to Ben MacDui, Carn A’Mhaim and the Lharig Ghru and the wonders it beholds. The adventurous may even take the North-West route over Carn Crom and up to Derry Cairngorm.


All my trips here to date have been fortunate enough to have been in glorious weather – although I’m sure my upcoming Photography Trip to the Cairngorms in 2 weeks time will see some rather more testing weather!
