Visited the clay pigeon shooting at Rothiemurchus with my 14 year old stepson. We've been clay pigeon shooting before but not at a place like this. It's fantastic and has a huge variety of different exercises to try I think 27 different shoots was mentioned mimicking rabbit, pheasant, down the line, overhead and lots more. The instruction from 'John' was... More

As we were staying in Aviemore and we had got the leaflet from the information center we decided to spend a day in Rothiemurchus. When we went to the Rothiemurchus center to know what activity we could do they just said that none were still available as they had to be booked in advance. Even though the leaflet talks about...

We understand how frustrating this is, so to avoid it happening all our promotion material makes clear that booking in advance is advised; to make sure this is possible we have at... More

I went with my 16 year old son who has shot before, although this was my first time. Our instructor, Paul, was excellent; so patient and generous. My son remarked that he was a much better instructor than he had experienced elsewhere and that it made all the difference to what we were able to achieve. There are a number... More

we've had the luck of a perfect weather for our river tubing experience. after a short drive and walk we had several passages of rapids and more relaxed sectors. The guides are very helpful, friendly and patient. they make pics that you can download for free after. It was an amazing experience.

Beautifully presented & well located with lots of additional comforts usually not offered in similar accommodation. The breakfast was a treat as was the room it was served in! The owner went out of her way to make us feel comfortable, in fact above & beyond helping us with recommendations of similar standard places to stay for the remainder of... More

This was a fabulous experience. Really good fun for all the family. The staff are really friendly and will take photos and film your adventure. Interesting route take you though wooded areas and fields with highland cows as well as the river. Fantastic. Most fun I've had in ages!

This is a great place for anyone to learn to fish, relax and also watch ospreys fishing. It is only 10 min walk from Aviemore.

3 early 30's couples. We chose the segways and we're not let down. Plenty of training to help get us started then whizzed around enjoying the beautiful scenery. Can't recommend the segways enough.

The Rothiemurchus Clay Shooting Ground is most definitely worth a visit whether you are a novice or a keen amateur or an expert shot - - good and patient instructors (when required) and some very 'tasty' and testing stands for regular shooters: a wide variety of stands are available for all shooters. A most enjoyable place to shoot clay pigeons.

We made a last minute booking (quite literally ten minutes before the last quadding activity) and the service was fantastic. The booking was made quickly and we were taken to the training area where our instructor was very clear and informative about how the bikes worked. It was my first time quad biking and I could not have asked for... More
