With lots to see and do for all ages, especially lovers of the outdoors, West End Cottage makes a good base in the Scottish Highlands.
West End Cottage enjoys a quiet setting in the popular village of Carrbridge near the banks of the River Dulnain, which meanders through the village and eventually merges with the River Spey. The village is situated at the base of the Monadhliath Mountains, and is famous for its 18th-century packhorse bridge and the warmth of its welcome to visitors. The cottage is the perfect base from which to explore this beautiful part of the Highlands, and there are woodland and riverside walks to suit all abilities leading right from the doorstep. It is within a minute’s walk of the shop, pubs and tea rooms, and just a few minutes further from the wonderful Landmark Forest Adventure Park, where adults and children can have a fun-filled day. Carrbridge Golf Club is also close by. Aviemore is situated in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park at the head of the Speyside Way, and the area boasts a wide range of outdoor activities including skiing, snowboarding, mountain and quad biking, zip lining, zorbing, climbing and hill walking and a variety of water sports on nearby Loch Insh, Loch Morlich and the River Spey.

The lovely Spey Valley golf course and the Dalfaber Resort, with its wonderful array of leisure activities, is well worth a visit.
