With the Cairngorms National Park on the hotel’s doorstep, there are plenty of natural wonders to explore, including the awe-inspiring Cairngorm Mountain peak and its unique Funicular Railway.

For grain lovers, the area boasts a number of famous distilleries – stay local and visit the Dalwhinnie or Tomatin distilleries, or spend a day following the Malt Whisky Trail, with a stop off at a Speyside distillery or two, many of which offer guided tours where visitors can learn more about the famous Scottish golden nectar.

Mountain bikers will be in their element at Laggan Wolftrax, a 35km single track that’s well maintained and available all year round. Additionally, skiers and snowboarders will find plenty to get their teeth into in the form of nearby Cairngorm Mountan, with equipment hire available during the winter months through our partners 'Ski Norwest' based at the hotel.
