Sometimes, there really is only one thing you want to spend a few hours doing

Just close your eyes and enjoy!


“It is when the body is keyed to it’s highest potential and controlled to a profound harmony seeping into something that resembles a trance that I discover most nearly what it is to be. I have walked out of the body and into the mountain.” NAN SHEPHERD

Sometimes a bit of space and quiet is all that’s required.

In this magical setting of majestic mountains, the shimmering Spey and misty moorland you can embrace your escape.

Breathe fresh air and find space and solace.

Enjoy scenic walks along the river, right on the doorstep of the house whilst retreating to the warmth of the roaring fire upon your arrival home

Or perhaps a spot of wild swimming?

An early morning dip will provide a blissful start to the day or an evening splash in the water for some summertime unwinding.

Read a book.

Why not take a moment to immerse yourself in some literature inspired by The Cairngorms? There is a great selection of books throughout the lodge, lose yourself in Nan Shepherd’s masterpiece ‘The Living Mountain’
