The Benleva Hotel was a good place to stay. It services Great Glen Way walkers and is blessed with this 450 year old Spanish sycamore tree, also known as 'The Hanging Tree'. An interesting history, no doubt!
A drive through Inverness to Aviemore brought us to the Rothiemurchus Forest, and a quiet road head by Loch an Eilein. From here, a half hour walk past a locked bothy and up a zigzag path took us to the fine little summit of Ord Ban (428 metres).
Back down for lunch, then a pleasant walk around Loch an Eilein.
On to Challenge Control at Newtonmore, then a nice veggie lasagne with the gang.
