The locale is know as Strathspey and formsa major part of the Cairngorms National Park. The Cairngorm Mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to the glens, rivers, lochs and forests where wildlife thrives. The hills and mountains provide the water supply for the many distilleries which have been producing world renowned malt whisky for centuries. Sking on Cairngorm Mountain and The Lecht can be as good as many European resorts when the conditions are good. To the North there are excellent beaches on the Moray Firth at Nairn and Findhorn and Dolphins can be seen in the firth.
There are castles and ruins throughout the Strath which has a rich and sometimes bloody history of clan conflict.
