About this location

The Aviemore and the Cairngorms region

The Highlands is the largest, yet least populated geographical area of Scotland and holds some of the most spectacular and diverse scenery like the towering mountain ranges of Nevis and Cairngorm, pockets of the old Caledonian Forest, plentiful lochs and rivers.

It plays host to a wealth of wildlife, with the majestic golden eagle soaring high over heads of red deer on the mountains and pine martens, roe deer, capercaillie, squirrels and wild cat all finding refuge in pockets of the ancient Caledonian Forest. Dolphins and seals navigate the seas, while otters, ospreys and sea eagles fish in the lochs and rivers.


Just l mile from the Highland Town of Kingussie, 12 miles south of Aviemore. Within l mile shops, restaurants, within 6 miles beach, wildlife park, folk museum, within 19 miles winter skiing, reindeer centre, osprey centre, various visitor attractions.

One of the best golf courses in the Cairngorm National Park only a few minutes drive away and fishing less than 400metres.
