Things To Do in Kincraig
If you have a bucket list ready to experience in the Highlands, this location will likely tick most of the boxes. For starters, just a minutes walk from your door is a bar voted by Herald Scotland as being the 11th best pub in the country. Enjoy a pint of Cairngorms Gold in Suie Bar, run by only two owners in more than 100 years.
The acclaimed Highland Wildlife Park is in this neck of the woods too. In fact, you might want to save on your carbon footprint by taking the scenic walk there, which is just over two miles in length. However, taking the four-minute drive will gain you access to the safari aspect of the park, where you can view the animals from the comfort of your car. The walk-around area is fascinating in its own right so that you could do a day of each.
You are close to the River Spey, a flyfishing haven where the salmon and sea trout season runs from mid-February to the end of August. If you have forgotten your waders and fishing tackle, then travel the half an hour to Mortimer’s in Grantown-on-Spey, where you can hire equipment. You are less than a mile from Loch Insh, too, great for kayaking and canoeing.
Take an exhilarating aerial ride at Aviemore’s Zip Trek Park, just six miles from your cottage. It is a guided journey made up of 14 zip wires for more than a mile, flying over a river gorge reaching speeds of 40mph at the end.
As you toast your tootsies in front of the wood burner or lose yourself in the perpetual bubbles of the hot tub, you can appreciate your surroundings from the comfort of your cabin. It is a light-filled retreat with apex glass skylights in both the open plan living space and main bedroom.
Fall out of bed and you won’t be far from the pub and one of the country’s best animal parks is just 2.2 miles down the road. The area oozes with stunning scenery and direct access to local wildlife and when it comes to providing outdoor activities too there is plenty nearby for the whole family, so there will be more than enough to keep everyone occupied whether they like a slow pace or the excitement of a more adrenaline-fueled experience or adventure.
And if it is just a home-from-home experience you are after, with lazy day BBQs and chilling out inside, this cabin has all the character to give you one of the best R&R experiences you will ever have whilst boasting all of the best in home creature comforts.
