The Aviemore and the Cairngorms region

From the lush green farmlands of the Borders to the ruggedness of the Highlands, the Scots are proud of their land and identity. Scotland also has some of Britain's best beaches with glorious stretches of clean sand over which to roam.


This charming Highland village lies in an idyllic location between the towns of Kingussie and Aviemore. Kincraig offers a wide variety of activities for all the family at any time of year and is particularly well positioned for anyone who enjoys outdoor activities. Visitors can enjoy climbing, fishing, cycling, walking and can try their hand at water sports at Loch Insh. Equipment and instruction are all available from here. If you prefer quieter and less strenuous pursuits, birdwatching from the RSPB hide overlooking the Insh Marshes Reserve is something to consider. The Highland Wildlife Park is close by and a chance to see bison, red pandas, wolves, arctic foxes and wildcats is not to be missed. The scenery is breathtaking and the area is a fabulous holiday destination, with its wealth of attractions, villages and rich cultural heritage.
