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.

|21-Apr-2018||Braleckan House DH5 (overall)||Great house very well equipped. Unfortunately the access code you supplied was incorrect which was annoying. A safety gate at the top of the stairs would have been great as we had two small children with us.|

|17-Apr-2018||Tigh Na Clachan Cottage EE8 (overall)||Easy booking system and good value for money.
Tigh Na Clachan Cottage was Idyllic.
|17-Apr-2018||Silcroft Cottage BD4 (overall)||Silcroft cottage is a home away from home, warm and inviting and has everything you need for a weeks stay. The view from the cottage was excellent and we were visited on many occasions by deer and pheasants. I really enjoyed cooking in the fully equiped kitchen after spending the day out in the many forestry walks that are close to the cottage. My only negative would be how hard it was to get in and out of the shower and that there was no rail to hold onto, other than that I would definitely book here again.|
