Excellent terrain and wonderful experience! Do ask your guide to go slow for you to have time to enjoy the surroundings than just driving the quad.

My 10 year old son really wanted to fish while in Scotland so we thought a stocked trout pond would be perfect. Also, this park was open till 9pm at night so we didn't have to rush to get there. We stopped at the fishery and were greeted by 2 very nice employees who happily rented us the gear and... More

We booked the "intermediate" hack and had the most brilliant time. The ponies are lovely - well-schooled and gentle, and are in tip top condition. We had Feona looking after us who was great - she has a friendly, no-nonsense, and calm demeanour, she put us at our ease and wanted to make sure we had a good time, and... More

You have to give credit to Rothiemurchus and the Whole Estate Team. They offer something for everyone and do the basics really well. Location is everything, but the service and provision of options is first class. Mountain Bike trails and routes around the estate and Glenlmore are well maintained and signed, great for all levels of biker Walking routes, lots... More

We had a great time at the shooting - many of us hadn't shot before. The staff were excellent - Maria was a fantastic teacher and had us all shooting like pro's in no time - even though we were joking around too! I definitely recommend this - even though it was very wet, I was sad when it ended!... More

the Rothiemurchas Clay Pigeon Shooting is something to experience. We were there as part of a small groups and it was simply the best fun I have had in ages. Our instructor Simon has so much patience and was very keen to make sure we got a bang for our buck. We started very slowly and then he changed the... More

Tea room as fantastic as usual. Did Quad Biking again - great fun. As a repeat customer, it would be nice to have a more advanced quad biking option when I come back again next Summer. Also did the clay pigeon shooting with my teenage son - first time for him and many years since I first tried it -... More

So we got up to quite a lot of things at the Rothiemurchus Estate on Monday. We started off with the half day pony trek. Finding where we needed to go was quite challenging as while signage to rothiemurchus estate was clear to Pony trekking was a complete mystery. Within the first 15 minutes one of the ponies collapsed! A... More
