Minigaig Pass - Kingussie to Blair Atholl

45 km / 28 miles

Highland, Perth and Kinross
The Minigaig road which was built towards the end of the 16th century includes ancient drove roads and early trade routes which link Blair Atholl with Kingussie.

Ruthven Bridge crosses the River Spey near Kingussie (NN75979978). The bridge is in a very poor condition and the bridge superstructure is about to be replaced. This will require that the bridge is closed to all traffic, including pedestrians, between 29th July 2015 and 11th September 2015. There is no plan to construct a temporary bridge across the Spey.
