    Yet another beautiful place. Choose between 3 walks around the Loch an Eilein.. The scenery is just amazing.

    The 4 stars are for the girl in the cafe..morning of 25/7/22. What a lovely polite young lady who made everyone smile.
    Unlike the woman in the shop below..You can’t sell faulty goods without telling customers before hand, then be rude when said customer points it out…Manners cost nothing, especially when your wrong..My son bought goggles with his pocket money..

    Had afternoon tea booked in private first class coach booked. Staff at the station and on the train were very helpful and kind. Kept me informed of any delays, which coach to stand near. On board the staff, took me to the correct compartment, provided me with lots of gluten free food, which they ask you to tick beforehand. Lots of tea, kept coming round and asking if there was anything else I wanted. Had an absolutely terrific and memorable day. Could not be more helpful, would love to give more than 5 stars.

    We visited Rothiemurchus fishery everyday for the week while we were visiting Aviemore. My three sons were absolutely hooked!
    Best fishery we have visited for views, staff and the quality & quantity of fish.

    For beginners, young family’s or anyone wanting to start learning to fish the bait lochs are fantastic way to spend a few hours.

    The fly fishing lochs are crystal clear and moving with so many healthy fish. Its always more exciting when you can see the fish in the water and there were some huge fish - easily double digit !

    My sons felt the staff went above and beyond on helping them during the week - making them feel very welcome, encouraging them and helping them out with a few issues they had with their own equipment.

    Over the years we have visited this fishery but it has improved so much

    There can’t be a fishery with better views with the cairngorms in the back ground and feeding ospreys in the sky above !

    Simply stunning! I can’t recommend a visit to Loch Morlich beach enough - especially on a sunny day. Amazing views, nice cafe and toilets, loads of woodland walks and play areas - just fantastic! Perfect for families.

    Family loved it. Lovely area, well kept and lots of fun activities for all ages. Good value for what you get.

    Only niggle is the food from the cafe is absolutely dire, but I suspect that’s to keep costs down so fair enough. Would be nice if that had one of those posh burger vans as well for picky people like me.

    I visited on an autumnal Monday morning, and parked at the visitor centre car park. There were plenty of spaces - I believe you could get a hot drink here too, but I'm not sure it was open. There's a variety of trails - I opted for the yellow one, about 45 minutes of walking, which took me down to the loch. A very easygoing walk - perfect way to start my day. There is another cafe on route, and toilets, so plenty of options. I'd visit again, and probably spend more time in the area.

    A gentle 45 minute walk along the clear path from the reindeer centre takes you to the Green Lochan. On the very hot day that we went some people were swimming. A quiet spot with a viewpoint seat overlooking the lochan. Beautiful!

    I would recommend going there at the very start of your trip, especially if you had a more spontaneous trip like me. The staff was very helpful and gave me useful information.

    I have cycled on sections of the Speyside Way which is excellent. The signposting is great and the surfaces well maintained and good for cycling. The countryside is stunning.

    Worth a short or long walk round with well marked paths of varying difficulty. If you are a birder then its best in spring or early summer.

    You can't actually use the 300 year old bridge but do read its history. A piper plays on the bridge Saturday teatime at 5.45pm,
    We noticed children playing and swimming in the river underneath on one evening. Pity about the eyesore garage next to it with dumped, broken down vehicles,.

    This is a lovely walk and a good introduction to long distance walking. There is one stretch between Ballidolloch and Cromdale where the trail is impossible to find. I'd recommend the alternative route on the B9102 there, But otherwise very well marked and just stunning.
