Loch an Eilein Castle

Historic attractions Forts and Barracks A lawless and roadless part of Britain where rebellions were frequent, the Highlands were once a major headache for the government. To sort out the problem, in the 1700s the region was garrisoned with troops. Forts and barracks were built and linked by new roads and bridges. This is the place to get an idea of the effort and investment that went into pacifying this area not so long ago. The splendid, now ruined, Ruthven Barracks, near Kingussie, once provided accommodation for 120 soldiers and 28 horses. It is a great place to visit, with superb views over the Insh marshes. Just over the hill on Donside is the impressive castle of Corgarff. It was rebuilt as a barracks in 1748, with a new star-shaped outer wall pierced by musket loops.

Step back in time and discover Aberdeenshire’s Archaeology with these exciting new heritage trails, available at visitor information outlets or online.

Townships and Sheilings Had you visited the Cairngorms 250 years ago you would not have seen a town, village or even an individual farm. People then lived in scattered townships of a few heather thatched houses and farmed the land in common. In the summer women and children went up into the hills with the cattle and stayed in small turf huts or sheilings. Ruins of these long deserted settlements, often marked in this area by an old larch tree, are easy to find. The Highland Folk Museum in Newtonmore has an excellent example of a rebuilt township.

Tomatin Distillery

Whisky T

Distilleries

he North East of Scotland has plenty of famous Malt Whisky distilleries ready to welcome you and share their secrets.

Speyside, on the lower reaches of the River Spey, is the heartland of the Scotland’s malt whisky industry. The 50 distilleries in this small area produce 60% of the country’s malt whisky. Amongst the world famous distilleries you’ll discover here are: The Glenlivet; Glen Grant; Glen Moray; Glenfiddich; Strathisla and The Macallan. A recent addition is the small family owned Ballindalloch Distillery. Closer to Strathspey are the award winning Tomatin Distillery, just up the A9 from Aviemore, and Dalwhinnie, Scotland’s highest distillery. Further east is Lochnagar on Deeside. Also well worth visiting is the Speyside Cooperage in Aberlour – makers and repairers of 150,000 oak casks per year for the local malt whisky industry. Malt whisky distilleries offer a variety of behind-thescenes tours. Here you’ll experience the processes that have to be gone through before a grain of barley is converted into a drop of malt whisky. Most distilleries have excellent shops where you can buy a range of their single malts of varying ages, many of them unobtainable elsewhere. Some distilleries even bottle rare single cask whiskies.

Red Squirrel

Wildlife Watching

Crested tits and crossbills

Caledonian pinewoods

If you’re hankering after some Strathspey specials, such as crested tit and Scottish crossbill, then try the trails network on the Rothiemurchus Estate. Orient yourself at the visitor centre beside the B970 ‘ski road’, then enjoy one of the many woodland and loch-side walks, including the delightful trail around Loch an Eilein. Go to the estate’s trout fishery, close to the bridge over the Spey at Aviemore, to see ospreys trying for fast-food take-aways in summer.

In the hamlet of Glenmore, about 6 miles from Aviemore, the Glenmore Visitor Centre will help you to get your bearings before sampling some of the walks through the Caledonian pinewoods here. Watch for red squirrels and signs of pine martens on the tracks.

The original ospreys By visiting Abernethy forest you will find yourself surrounded by a nature reserve that is ancient, wild and immeasurably special. Only a 15 minute drive from Aviemore, the Loch Garten Nature Centre offers the chance to experience this incredible place as well as get close to some of Scotland’s most amazing wildlife. Take the trails through the ancient Caledonian Forest to breath-taking views of the loch and surrounding hills. From the Centre you can watch for red squirrels, crested tits, greater-spotted woodpeckers, siskins and a host of other woodland birds who regularly visit the feeders. If the ospreys have returned to breed, there are views out onto what is perhaps the world’s bestwatched nest.

Year-round Reindeer Get the low down on reindeer at the Cairngorm Reindeer Centre, almost next door to the Glenmore Visitor Centre. Go on a guided walk to meet some of the herd, then travel up to the Cairngorm car park to gain access to paths across the foot of the Northern Corries. Osprey

GREAT Walks

iscover the finest walking that Scotland has to offer.

Towards the Summit of Meall-a-Buachille

Some of the finest country walking is here, with a network of trails through superb Caledonian pine forests, long glens stretching deep into the hills and easy access on well-made paths to the high ground. To get a flavour of these forests try the path around beautiful Loch an Eilein with its island castle. Equally inspiring are the many trails in Glenmore, especially that go through the Pass of Ryvoan to the Green Lochan.

For a longer low level walk try the path through the Forest of Rothiemurchus and on up Glen Einich into the heart of the Cairngorms. Neighbouring Glen Feshie is another special place with ancient pines, beside a river in an ever narrowing glen. The Speyside Way - Aviemore to Grantown

Carrbridge Golf Course

T

Great Golf

his area has some of the best heathland golf courses in Britain. The renowned Boat of Garten Golf Club is perhaps the course that best captures the essence of Highland golf. From its 2nd tee and indeed most parts of the course, the views of the Cairngorms are breathtaking.

Other challenging 18 hole courses include Grantown-on-Spey, Newtonmore and Kingussie, with two excellent 9 hole courses at Nethybridge and Carrbridge. The latter is a real gem with a great variety of quite tricky holes, beautifully tended and with fabulous views in all directions. For a familyfriendly course try Craggan Outdoors. Children are particularly welcome here.

At the heart of Glenmore Forest, surrounded by ancient Caledonian pine trees, with the Cairngorms towering above the loch, and a water sports centre, this is a superb place to be at all times of the year. Only a short distance from the Cairngorms are the equally superb coastal beaches of Nairn, Culbin, Findhorn, Rosemarkie and the intimate Hopeman Beach with its gaily painted beach huts.

In Scotland the public have the right of access to most land and inland water, provided they respect the rights of the people and organisations who earn a living from the land, particularly livestock farmers. The Scottish Outdoor Access Code www.outdooraccess-scotland.scot - a really useful document – gives examples of the rights and responsibilities of all users from hill walkers to mountain bikers, kayakers to campers. Essential reading especially for dog owners! Paths have hugely improved in recent years. You’ll find that there are usually a range of well-marked trails wherever you are, especially on land owned by Forestry and Land Scotland.

DUNNOTTAR CASTLE Dunnottar Castle is one of the most impressive ruined Castles in Scotland. Full of mystery and intrigue it is where William Wallace stole into the Castle and defeated a garrison of English soldiers taking it back into Scottish hands.

It was also at Dunnottar, the most defendable Castle in the kingdom, that the Scottish crown jewels were hidden during the dark days of Cromwell’s occupation before being smuggled out for safe keeping. It is here that 167 people were imprisoned in squalid conditions for refusing to denounce their faith. Visit today and watch seabirds wheeling on the breeze and spot the wildlife around the Castle while you enjoy the extraordinary sights of this formerly impregnable fortress.

Dunrobin CASTLE The most northerly of Scotland’s great houses. It is the largest house in the highlands, with 189 rooms and is one of Britain’s oldest continuously inhabited houses, dating in part from the early 1300s. The Gardens The Gardens were laid out in 1850 by the architect Sir Charles Barry, who was responsible for the Victorian extension to the Castle and who designed the Houses of Parliament. The arrangement of the Gardens, inspired by those at Versailles, have changed little in the 150 years since they were planted. Despite its location so far north, the sheltered Gardens are able to support a surprising range of plants. The Museum - Open 11am to 4pm Built by William, Earl of Sutherland as a Summer House and extended by the 3rd Duke, the Museum houses a collection of hunting trophies and other items brought from all over the world, together with many objects of interest presented to the Museum by friends of the Sutherland family.

The softest cashmere from China and Mongolia, and fine lambswool, is spun, dyed and woven at the original mill on the banks of the River Lossie in Elgin, where Johnstons of Elgin has manufactured for over 200 years. The only remaining British mill to convert natural, raw material into the finished product, Johnstons of Elgin utilises the traditional skills of craftsmen and women, alongside innovative technology and contemporary design. One of the world’s foremost producers of cashmere woven and knitted garments, Johnstons of Elgin is continuing its company tradition of creating luxury British products, of the finest quality, for an international market.

Les plus purs cachemires chinois et mongols ainsi que la fine laine d’agneau sont filés, teints et tissés chez Johnstons, manufacture écossaise de tissu de qualité. Établie en 1797 au bord de la Lossie à Newmill, Elgin, elle est aujourd’hui la seule filature Britannique à produire des tissus luxueux et des produits finis à base de matières brutes naturelles. Son secret : la fusion de l’expérience et de l’expertise de ses artisans et de la technologie de pointe et le design contemporain. Ainsi, Johnstons, spécialiste en cachemire et un des producteurs de tissus les plus éminents, continue la tradition de l’entreprise de créer des produits Britanniques de luxe et de première qualité appréciés dans le monde entier.

Reinstes Cashmere aus China und Mongolien und feinste Lammwolle werden in der Textilmanufaktur Johnstons gesponnen, gefärbt und zu edlen Stoffen verarbeitet. Vor 200 Jahren in Newmill am Ufer des Lossie in Elgin gegründet ist Johnstons heute die einzige Weberei Großbritanniens, in der noch natürliche Rohstoffe zu fertigen Produkten verarbeitet werden. Dabei setzen wir auf traditionelles Handwerk und langjährige Erfahrung sowie modernste Technologie und zeitloses Design. Wir sind einer der weltführenden Kaschmirspezialisten und Hersteller von luxuriösen Stoffen höchster Qualität für den internationalen Markt und führen somit unsere bewährte Firmentradition fort.

Il Cashmere piú puro proveniente dalla Cina e dalla Mongolia e lana d’agnello di altissima qualitá vengono filati, tinti e tessuti dall’azienda Johnstons, fondata duecento anni fa a Newmill, presso il fiume Lossie nella città di Elgin. Johnstons é l’unica azienda britannica a trasformare materiali greggi in prodotti completamente finiti, impiegando i metodi tradizionali dei propri artigiani, le tecnologie piú moderne e design contemporaneo. Specialisti del cashmere e tra i piú importanti produttori al mondo, la Johnstons continua la sua tradizione aziendale creando prodotti britannici di lusso e di altissima qualitá destinati al mercato internazionale.
