Set between Aberdeen and Inverness, this area offers you stunning scenery. From the Cairngorm mountains, the lush Caledonian forest and the beautiful coastline overlooking the Moray Firth, the lodge is perfectly located to explore this delightful part of Scotland. The rivers are famous for their trout and salmon fishing, and they also supply water used in the making of the Speyside malt whiskies such as Glenfiddich and Glenlivet. Visiting the distilleries is a must during your holiday. There are some great golf courses, plenty of opportunities for walking, cycling and trekking in the Cromdale Hills and Cairngorm mountains.
We love this area for the diversity and abundance of wildlife. As well as many RSPB reserves, you can explore for yourself – or book an experienced local guide – and see some of the birds and animals indigenous to this part of Scotland.
