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.
