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.

|22-Mar-2017||Ornsay House ET1 (overall)||I booked on line. Everything happened as it should except that when asking for a list of names in my party I didn't include mine as it was already on the booking application. This caused a problem. Easily resolved by talking to Unique Cottages. They were polite and helpful.|

|18-Mar-2017||Inchrye Lodge, Lindores Loch AC9 (overall)||We were not disappointed with anything from our week at the cottage. It was a delight to stay in the cottage and to explore the surroundings.|
|18-Mar-2017||Burnside House EX9 (overall)||Burnside house is a nice cottage in a nice location. The house is clean,tidy and very welcoming,alot of peace and quiet.
The cottage is tucked away in a kind of culture de sac of two houses behind Sonachan house so one has to drive round the house and private drive to get to Burnside cottage so it's not truly isolated from other houses.
However the location is great and fortunately the owner of Sonachan House Michelle is fantastic ,and so being close to Sonachan house is very relaxing and Michelle is very helpful regarding any problem we had. Would stay again definitely and would recommend it.
One thing that might be good for future is if they would put some steps that lead from Burnside to the small quiet road outside so one can walk directly onto the road without having to go beside Sonachan House.If they put steps on the wall then that would be fantastic I think.
