The cafe / restaurant here is fab. They have fantastic cakes and we had BBQ outside. The BBQ venison was unbelievable. The shop has some delicious things if you are in a self catering nearby, but it is quite pricey.

Expert tuition - either in groups or on your own! It's fun and you achieve a result - even me! Cost varies dependent on numbers involved. Just beyond Rothiemurcus centre - definite repeat on the way.

Great review - thank you. I am so pleased you enjoyed the Clay shoot; the price depends on the number of clays each person wants to shoot, not on the number of people of the group. Hope to see you here again soon.

Usually people drive on their own car to the Coos site, but as we didn't have one, the rangers took us in their car. They were very nice and answered all our questions during the visit. We had the chance to see the Coos very...More

Sorry, Not really - but you could learn to Fly Fish there. It's a great sport, the Fishery is a very beautiful, peaceful place and they have excellent fly fishing instructors. Best way to wait for an Osprey.

Thank you, yes there are 50+ Highland Cattle in the fields here, but they can be un-cooperative, some distance from the road and not reliably easy to see. The Rothiemurchus Ranger led Hairy Coo and Safari tours enable you to... More
