A Rightly Famous Area
The name will also strike a strong chord with fishermen, for the Spey is one of the great salmon rivers of Scotland. If you can't afford a beat on this queen of salmon rivers, you can go for brown or sea trout, while tributaries such as the Avon (A'an), Livet, Aberlour, Rinnes and Fiddich also provide great sport, their names reminding you of the refreshment to be enjoyed after your day's activities!
For walkers, the Speyside way, which runs between Spey Bay near Buckie on the Moray coast and Aviemore in the Cairngorms, is one of Scotland's four great walking trails and is an amazing means of seeing some of the country's most spectacular countryside. Some parts may also be covered on cycle or on horseback.
The area is particularly rich in wildlife, being home to deer, ptarmigan, capercaillie, and even the elusive wildcat, while in the sky are buzzards and eagles as well as many smaller birds. Boat of Garten near Aviemore is where osprey first returned to the UK in the 1950s having died out here in the 19th century. They have bred successfully here ever since and now hunt all along the river Spey. Visitors can view them on camera at the RSPB Osprey Centre.

|20-Jan-2017||Upper Sonachan Farmhouse AU1 (overall)||The cottage was comfortable and welcoming on our arrival. We were provided with very good quality bedding and towels and the bathrooms were well equipped if in need of a little uipdating. The kitchen was a really good size but we could have done with more in the way of equipment, for instance preperation bowls and oven proof dishes.|
|20-Jan-2017||March Cottage EZ4 (overall)||We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful cottage. Great location, with an amazing window seat overlooking the loch - no better way to spend winter's afternoon watching the wildlife.
Very well equipped kitchen, sometimes holiday homes are pretty basic, but not this one. Couldn't find any egg cups though, and our daughter does like a soft boiled egg!
Comfy beds, hot water bottle provided for the single room, and heated underblankets on the double bed were a luxury we hadn't been used to, have since purchased for home use!
Great location with some stunning walks and scenery close by.
