Boat of Garten

This small Highland community, sitting on the River Spey in the heart of the Cairngorm National Park, is called the Osprey Village. It was the first place in Scotland to be recolonised by ospreys in the 1950’s and the RSPB osprey centre is a short distance away at Loch Garten.

Boat of Garten is the perfect location for relaxing, exploring the park and the rest of Highland Scotland, or indulging in the innumerable outdoor activities from the likes of walking, mountain biking and water-sports, to golf, clay shooting and fishing. 


Loch Cottage News

This winter has been sadly short of snow so far, with the mountains looking quite bare compared to normal. It looks like that is getting put right today and over the next few days with a good dump even at low level. This was a scene on this morning's dog walk

The autumn this year has been absolutely stunning for colours. This photo was taken riding away from the Corrour Station cafe towards Loch Ossian. Corrour station is the highest and most remote in the UK with the main station building converted into a fantastic cafe. Its a ride we love to do once or twice a year. It is suitable for mountain bikes or gravel bikes, or if don't ride you can get the train from Tulloch with 3 hours to eat and explore before the return train
