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.

Da wir aus privaten Gründen leider den Aufenthalt abbrechen mussten, werden wir auf jeden Fall noch einmal dort buchen.
|21-Jun-2017||Dunfuinary Cottage DA7 (overall)||The cottage was in a superb location and was accurately described on the website. It was clean, tidy and more than enough room for two. The directions to the location were also most helpful as was the factor who greeted us and made us feel very welcome. The wildlife on view was stunning.|
|21-Jun-2017||Feshie FE6 (overall)||Feshie is a beautifully presented property with everything we needed for a great week, self catering in Aviemore. It was easy to access on our arrival, the neighbours were incredibly friendly and the surroundings quiet and peaceful. Aviemore was an easy 20 minute walk away and there are an abundance of places to visit in the area by car.
The facilities inside cannot be faulted. Our only very small concern was that the back garden is not gated off in any way so you do need to keep a close eye on little ones when they are in the garden. It certainly wouldn't put us off visiting again though!
