The opportunities to stay here ranges from historic homes to contemporary retreats, where each destination has its unique qualities to keep visitors returning time and again. Stay at a Victorian former tweed mill by the Gynack Burn turned restaurant with rooms. Opt for a bed and breakfast surrounded by woodland. Watch long-horned bulls go about their day in peaceful pastures, relax in carefully tended gardens and spend time with loved ones by an open fire in the evenings.

The region is perfect for romantic escapes, quality time with friends, walking with dogs and enjoying local food and drink. In addition, you can go climbing at Kingussie Crag, do water sports on the lochs, go mountain biking on the trails at Glenlivet Estate and cycle through forests and past fields. You can even visit the famous royal Balmoral Estate and enjoy some of the best stargazing in the world.
