Boat of Garten - All kinds of tasty essential and treats, plus a post office that is always open. The owners are about the loveliest people you could find to run a shop that sells everything from coffees to go, hot sausage rolls and cakes to Gin, Whisky, gourmet chocolate to toilet paper and produce. We love this village shop.

Hike or bike along part of the Speyside way, which connects Boat of Garten and Nethy Bridge to Grantown on Spey, Aviemore, Kingnussie and further. One of our favourite (and the dogs') stretches on the trail is from Boat of Garten into Aviemore where you get gorgeous views of the Cairngorms. http://www.speysideway.org https://www.walkhighlands.co.uk/speyside-way.shtml

A great wee trip for kids and train fans, Harry Potter style, to get the train from Broomhill, Nethy Bridge and Boat of Garten into Aviemore. A sceanic trip, with mince pies and mulled wine during the winter, or tea and scones other times of the year. We have biked to Aviemore with the kids along the Speyside way, then caught this train back to Nethy for a day of adventure.

Near Kingnussie, this is a good short stop off. It was built by King George II after the second Jacobite rising in 1715 to help keep the rebelling Highlanders in check.

We like this wildlife park because the animals seem to have more space and because the kids love it. Endlessly facinating watching the polar bears, tigers, scottish wild cats, red pandas, monkeys, etc.

Located between Boat of Garten and Aviemore, you can walk or bike here through Garten woods, or access it from the main road. It is lovely spot for a swim in the summer or ice skate in the winter. Fishing is also popular here.
