For a Great Day Out From Inverness – Visit Rothiemurchus
For a great day out from Inverness here’s an idea – visit Rothiemurchus in the Scottish Highlands. It’s just south of Aviemore and about 45 minutes drive from Inverness.
For centuries nature and people have lived in harmony in Rothiemurchus. At its heart lies one of the largest areas of natural forest in Britain with an extraordinary variety of wildlife that depends on it for survival. Eighteen generations of Grants of Rothiemurchus and other families who have put love and care into maintaining the land for over 450 years, mean we can enjoy this unique environment today.
By enjoying Rothiemurchus you can help: profits from activities, car parking, shops and other commercial activities are ploughed back into the care of this family owned estate to enable sustainable stewardship of the forest and for wildlife to thrive.
You can go there simply to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and countryside, take a picnic and make the most of the great outdoors. Or you may want to take part in the activities available both on land or on the water – canoeing, rafting, photography, pony trekking or archery are just a few examples.
If that sounds way too energetic you can also take in the farm shop and deli, full of local produce and the gift shop to browse. Plus there’s also the Druie Restaurant Cafe for when you’re ready to rest and enjoy a delicious meal.
It seems quite possible that you will fall in love with this place when you visit, so you’ll be pleased to know you can also book private events here too. Weddings can be held in the Victorian shooting lodge, set right in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park and featuring it’s own private picturesque loch.
So I hope you’ll be making a plan to see this stunning setting for yourself for yourself.
