Great day out and well worth the £49 for the shooting experience. Simon was our instructor and was excellent from start to finish, very patient and gave great advice to hit the targets. Have been coming up here for over 20 years and this was the first activity done through the Rothiemurchus estate, thanks for a great day out. We... More

We booked for our two grandchildren (9 & 13) who have had riding experience before albeit 'limited'. The staff at the Pony trekking location were helpful but seemingly expected the kids to know more and to have more previous experience. If this is a prerequisite then there should be more emphasis upon this in the advertising material. In the circumstances... More

Lovely food, staff friendly and attentive, great little shop. We came here just before our bike ride to loch Eilen. Perfect place that is a sun trap. They also sell local fresh food which is always a bonus . Thanks

We had a great day at Rothiemurchus!! We did cycling, renting bikes from Mike's. The trails were easy enough for younger children. Nice to ride and have a picnic on Loch en Eilein. Quad bike adventure was a favourite ever experience for my 12 year old (and husband). They had no trouble learning to ride and enjoyed the scenery. Their... More

Always like to fish Rothiemurchus Loch when we are within driving distance. Always popular and well fished whenever we have been there. Plenty of variety with regard to tactics on the water. Lures, naturals, wet and dry flies all seem to produce fish on their given day; the secret is not to stick to the one method. Pleasant staff around... More

We did a lot of things on the estate when in the area and on every activity we found all the staff to be very helpful and friendly no matter how nervous we were at the activity! Thank you

We did the tree top adventure, which was harder than Go-Ape, It's a good course and has a small course to start with, where you can then decide to proceed with the main course or not. We all enjoyed ourselves, but I found it quite hard going, but perhaps I'm just getting old!

Great looking bikes and kit. Shame the man in the shop, presumably Mike was rude and unpleasant when I lifted a bike to feel the weight. He made it quite clear he knows much more about bikes than I do.
