Scenic Speyside and Loch Ness

Scenic Speyside and Loch Ness

Visit somewhere unique, memorable and ancient. The region is well-known for its unspoilt beaches, lush farmlands, pretty villages and attractive royal burghs. The Cairngorm National Park contains forty-three Munros, nine nature reserves, glistening lochs and an abundance of majestic wildlife. Carrbridge itself is a historic highland village and is possibly the best place in Scotland to see red squirrels and other wildlife including red deer, capercaillie, pine matins and golden eagles.
