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.

|15-Aug-2017||Kilbryde Castle Apartment FL1 (overall)||We thought that the service from Unique Cottages was smooth and efficient. The details of the property were descriptive and matched what we found.
As for the property. Kilbryde Castle Apartment is lovely. We certainly hope to be able to return. It is spacious, quiet and well kitted out. Our hosts were friendly and helpful, yet un-obtrusive - just what is needed.
To be able to walk around the grounds and down by the river was delightful. Also to be able to walk a little further and to be able to watch Red Kites helped the pleasure of the week.
All in all, it is one of the best apartments that we have stayed in anywhere.
