Grant Cottage, Tomintoul

Activities

Tomintoul is a great base for an action holiday and can cater for all tastes. Head to the Information Centre or the Ranger Station for details of walking, shooting and fishing, local Highland Games, Whisky Festivals or Agricultural shows, and don’t miss the kid’s adventure playground at the top of the main street. There is a clay pigeon shoot locally, and pony trekking from the village. Wildlife safaris are run locally and you should head to the Lecht for winter and summer activities. Golf is available at Ballindalloch, Dufftown, Grantown on Spey and Nethy Bridge. Beautiful sixteenth century Ballindalloch Castle and gardens shouldn’t be missed; Braemar and Balmoral Castle are within an hours drive.

Heading over towards Aviemore brings you to the Cairngorms and Glenmore Forest Park with a huge variety of outdoor activities throughout the year, as well as indoor options too. There is an excellent climbing wall which runs a Kids Club at weekends. Water sports are available on Loch Morlich and Loch Insch. White water rafting is available on the Spey. Swimming available at the Macdonald and Hilton Coylumbridge hotels and the indoor Funhouse play area is a must on a rainy day.

The Landmark Heritage Park at Carrbridge is a superb day out, cleverly combining hands-on history of the area with water rides and a range of activities including an assisted-wire freefall and a high-wire course. Caters for all ages and abilities with tree-top trail and smaller playgounds too.

You could visit the wolves at Kincraig Wildlife Park, try a range of outdoor activities at Craggan Outdoor Centre at Grantown or take the Funicular Railway to the top of the Cairngorms.

The pleasant small city of Elgin has all major facilities including leisure centre complex and a cinema for a day of recuperation.
