Unique habitats include the Cairngorm Plateau and Caledonian Pine Forest with iconic species such as Red and Roe Deer, Pine Marten and Black Grouse. The Highlands offer excellent wildlife watching - Abernethy RSPB resreve with its famous Ospreys is 45 minutes from the cottage, walking, cycling and, in winter, skiing, with the Aviemore Ski area within 40 minutes of the cottage.
The Rochiemurchus Estate near Aviemore offers fishing, pony trecking, wildlife watching (the Pine Marten watch really is wonderful), cycle hire, mountain biking, canoeing and more.
The Cairngom mountains, rising to over 1400m, are a beautiful area to walk and climb whatever the season (crampons and ice axe neccessary in winter).
Kingussie is 3 miles from the cottage and provides all the essentials for a stay in the Highlands with an excellent butcher and supermarket along with numerous gift shops. There are attractive walking trails around the town.
The Highland Wildlife Park with its Polar Bears, Wild Cat and Pine Marten specialises in northern species and is well worth a visit.
