Outdoor activities: Nestling within the highlands of the Cairngorms National Park, the area around Stronavaich offers a stunning natural playground for outdoor enthusiasts. These superb landscapes provide unlimited opportunities to explore and enjoy the scenery and to discover and observe the rich wildlife within it. Whatever your interests, abilities or energy levels we have trails on our doorstep for nature lovers, mountaineers, hikers, bikers (mountain or low-level) and skiers (nordic or downhill).  'Traditional' rural sports such as golf, fishing, and pony trekking are also well-catered for locally.


Whisky trails: The area around the Stronavaich Cairngorm Guest House has the largest concentration of whisky distilleries in Scotland with more than half (~54) being within a 40 mile radius. World famous brands in the immediate vicinity include Glenlivet, Glenfiddich, Glen Grant, Macallan, Aberlour and Glenlivet, with many other well known brands in nearby Speyside and beyond.


Heritage and culture: With over 300 castles, stately homes and historic ruins this corner of Scotland boasts more castles per acre than anywhere else, and there are plenty of cultural and historic sites of interest within striking distance of the guest house. Just 7 miles to the south, and part of  Visit Scotland's popular 'Castle Trail', lies the striking landmark of Corgarff Castle.  Numerous other castles lie within reach including well known examples such as the Queen's residence at Balmoral and the iconic baronial-style Craigievar Castle (said to have inspired Walt Disney) as well as lesser known 'hidden gems' just waiting to be explored.  For example, just to the east over the Ladder Hills behind Stronavaich, lies the remote hidden seminary of Scalan which played a vital role in the survival of the Catholic Church in Scotland.
