About 8 or 9 miles from Ballater along a single track road. There is a car park at the end destination - £3 for cars.
There is a visitor centre and toilets are also available. There are a number of walks but we decided to do the one that takes you all the way around the loch. It is 8 miles and took us about 2 hrs 45 mins walking at a reasonably good pace and with a couple of short breaks. The path is very good except for a mile or two where there are a number of rocks on the path to manoeuvre - but not drastic. This is a low level walk and does not require you to climb any hills!
At the far end of the loch there are some nice waterfalls to photograph plus there is a house built by Queen Victoria and which is still owned by the Royal Family. There is open access to the grounds and you can walk around the outside of the house.
A great walk.
