When walking the part of the Cateran trail which links the Spittal of Glenshee to Enochdu, you are following a route taken by Queen Victoria on several occasions when travelling from Deeside to Dunkeld on horseback. As well as being recorded in her book ‘More Leaves from the Journal of a Life in the Highlands’, one such journey in 1866 involved a visit to Kindrogan during which she paused for tea on the banks of the River Ardle – an event commemorated by a brass plaque beside the riverside path leading from Enochdhu to Kindrogan, a short distance from the trail.
