Heritage Information

This track was most recently used to access the shielings northeast of Loch Bhac. However, it has an older provenance being shown as a road on Stobie's map of Perthshire in 1783, and on a map of 1725 (in the British Library) as part of the road between Inversnaid Barracks and Ruthven Barracks at Kingussie. The route from Inversnaid was by Stronachlachar, the head of Loch Katrine, the north side of Loch Voil, Balquhidder, Lochearnhead, NE to Loch Tay and Kenmore, the west end of Loch Tummel, Blair Atholl, and thence N by the Minigaig Pass.
