What our guests have said about the surrounding countryside:

"Dulnain Bridge is excellently sited for leisure pursuits of all kinds, and for access to cities north and south."

"Superb weather all week - a heat haze at the top of Cairngorm, this observation was made via the funicular - not by foot!"

"The Landmark Centre at Carrbridge - a great place for children. The Glenlivet Distillery - well worth doing if only for the scenery. Picnic on the shore of Lochindorb about 20 minutes drive outside Grantown. It has a ruined Castle in the centre. For the more active a visit to Loch Insh Watersports Centre south of Aviemore - excellent home-made food in the cafe."

"We made our way up to Loch Ness and the Culloden battlefield. Driving through the Highlands witnessing some of the prettiest landscape any of us had seen. We made our way to Aviemore and rented bikes for the day. More of the amazing scenery."

"The highlight was the Grantown Highland Games. Can highly recommend the ranger guided walks from Nethy Bridge."

" The grand children loved the train ride to Aviemore."
