With so much to do in the surrounding area, there should never be a dull moment. Strathspey is Scotland’s outdoor playground, with every activity imaginable. From relaxing hill and forest walks, to adrenalin pumping zip wires, gorge walks and white water rafting all close by. There are Distilleries, Galleries and Tea rooms for a gentle day out, or for the more active there is sailing, canoeing, horse riding, mountain biking, quad biking and golf within easy reach. A change from the mountains is found a short drive to the golden beaches and mild climate of Nairn and Findhorn on the Moray Coast.

Tombain’s enclosed garden is a safe place for both children and dogs, large enough for an adventure, but small enough to see where they are. A barbeque supper on the patio, views of the sun setting on the Cairngorms and the valley below, is a great way to end the day.
