It is always a pleasure to visit Rothiemurchus, the little shop with deli is fantastic for choice. I love buying all my little treats. The staff are helpful and friendly.

I am not alone in being quite appalled at having to pay £1.50 PER PERSON just to park the car to walk round the loch. £1.50 per car would be excessive, per person is unacceptable. But then to discover that the toilets are locked...quite astonishing. The men's and ladies' toilets were locked, leaving only the disabled toilet for use. This... More

We had great fun as our first ever clay pigeon shooting experience. The instructor Paul was excellent. Good safety induction but still kept it fun. Great coaching skills too. It’s a lovely setting and a fun activity but the excellent instructor makes this a really great experience. Thank you

Took my girls (12yrs and 14yrs) on the quad trek yesterday and Andy (the guide) was absolutely superb. The quads and equipment were very good and the trek was just right. Andy took lots of video and photos on my phone for me and was super patient and very encouraging with my daughters. They both loved it and said they'd... More
