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.

|23-Oct-2017||The Library||When I raised a complaint this year, they believed their client without checking out the situation.
Took too long to reply to my initial complaint by email -stating they couldn't get hold of their. Lie to (once I asked them what the hold up was). They simply did not respond to my second email.
They said the cottage had been reviewed by them yearly. If this was the case, my complaint would have been seen years ago- and dealt with!!!
|23-Oct-2017||Lilac Cottage EP1 (overall)||I would recommend them|
|23-Oct-2017||Loch Cottage EG2 (overall)||Yes we enjoyed our stay which was our fifth time at the Loch Cottage and will return again. The owners go out their way to ensure everything is just right and welcoming in the cottage which is spotlessly clean and tidy.|
|22-Oct-2017||Moor Cottage EZ3 (overall)||Administrative process was very good and presented no problems.|
|22-Oct-2017||Satchells Cottage AB6 (overall)||The service is efficient but I think the housekeeping deposit of £150 is excessive.|
|22-Oct-2017||Pier Cottage AX2 (overall)||A lovely location, enjoyed seeing the wildlife and coastal walks. A trip to Iona well worthwhile and on a wet afternoon visited Duart Castle. A very cosy cottage, well equipped and cosy. Found some lovely beaches, dogs had a great time.|

|22-Oct-2017||Tweed Neuk Cottage BC9 (overall)||Yes, of course we would recommend to friends (which we have already done) and buy again. The accommodation was first class (so cosy and comfortable) plus a lovely welcome from the owners. We wanted for absolutely nothing.|
