I corrected the GPS-track for the places where I went a bit of the normal route. In this way you've got a good guideline for your own trip, but don't forget to take your own alternatives where needed. For example to buy your food along the way.
I used 5 nights, but put up my tent too early on the first day. The second day mainly follows forestry tracks and is easy to follow, but the distance was a bit to much compared to the other days. That is why I added another waypoint as alternative for this night.
You can put up your tent on many places when wild camping, but be prepared for midges when camping at sheltered places. I pitched my tent at more windy spots to avoid the midges.
Day 1: Fort William - Spean Bridge: good paths, but not to much to see around you. The noise of the A86 is on the background.
Day 2: Spean Bridge - Loch Laggan: mostly forestry tracks. Longest day without villages in between.
Day 3: Loch Laggan - Laggan village: Nice views, nice lake and enough things to see
Day 4: Laggan village - Newtonmore: Great views, the real Highland feeling. Bit more route finding compared to the other days. To my opinion this is the best part of the track!
Day 5: Newtonmore - Loch An Ellein: Great walking, nice surroundings, easy to follow tracks. You can also stay at the bothy, but I liked to camp instead.
Day 6: Loch An Ellein - Aviemore: short distance, but beautiful nature!
