Description

Enjoying a peaceful setting on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Nethy Bridge, Tamarisk makes a super base for exploring one of the most scenic and popular holiday destinations in Scotland. This detached house has been equipped and furnished to a good standard to ensure your holiday is as comfortable and relaxing as possible. Nethy Bridge, known as The Forest Village, spans the lower reaches of the River Nethy before it meets the River Spey, one of Scotland’s foremost salmon rivers. With the back drop of the stunning Cairngorm mountains and the Abernethy Forest, ’Nethy’ as it is known locally, is such a lovely destination for a family holiday. The village has a golf course, tennis courts, bowling green, children’s parks, and small swimming pool, all available for visitors to enjoy. It is within easy distance of some of the most popular attractions and activities of the Cairngorms National Park. Only 5 miles from Grantown-on-Spey and 10 miles from the bustling and popular town of Aviemore, which is situated in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park and at the head of the Speyside Way.
The area boasts a super range of shops, restaurants and bars along with a very wide range of outdoor activities including skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, quad biking, climbing, hill walking and a variety of water sports on Loch Insh, Loch Morlich and the River Spey, just a few of the myriad activities available. Nearby, Loch Garten is an RSPB Nature Reserve and is very popular with avid birdwatchers as ospreys nest in this part of the park. Take a trip on the Cairngorm Mountain Railway, or visit the Cairngorm Reindeer Centre, the Highland Wildlife Park at nearby Kingussie, or the Landmark Forest Adventure Park in Carrbridge, all within easy reach. Visit the lovely Spey Valley golf course and the Dalfaber Resort with its wonderful array of leisure activities.
Visit the Moray coastline, peppered with little fishing villages and beautiful beaches, voted in the top twenty of the best coastline destinations in the world! A super base for exploring the many delights this area has to offer with so much to see and do for all ages.

About the local area

With a rare wildlife stronghold and a landscape shaped by the ice ages the Cairngorms National Park is full of scenic variety and has a treasure trove of natural wonders for you to enjoy.

Walk the Cairngorms hills which were formed when the last age covered this country. With landscapes characterized by high, rounded humps carved through deep and spectacular gorges the variety of geology in the area is truly amazing. It is also home to a fantastic array of rare wildlife. One quarter of Britain's 400 most rare and endangered wildlife species are protected within the park. If you are lucky you might spot such species as the golden eagle, otter, pine marten, osprey and Red kite sheltering in amongst the sub-Arctic and mountain plants.

The glens of Isla, Prosen, Clova and Mark are well known destinations for walkers as they are all easily accessible by car. They offer low level walks but also provide access to tougher long distance hikes into the south east section of the park. Make sure you take the funicular railway up nearly 1,200m to the summit of CairnGorm Mountain to enjoy spectacular views.

As well as the impressive uplands in the area the lochs and rivers in the region are home to some world class salmon fishing, wildlife and habitats making it yet another area not to be missed. The waters offer a variety of scenic delights including gorges, waterfalls and tranquil expanses of streams.

For woodland and forest walks visit Loch an Eilein on the Rothiemurchus Estate in the heart of Caledonian Pine Forest. Or if you are in search of a beach visit Loch Morlich where the sandy expanse proves popular with fisherman and water sports enthusiasts.

Many attractions are connected with the area's history or wildlife and are great places to learn more about the natural wonders that surround you. Whether you have a passion for wildlife, whisky or walking, or simply want to have fun, you will never be short of something new to experience in this wonderful area of The Cairngorms National Park.
