We paid £16 per person for an hour of fishing but we went two and a bit hours before closing and it wasn't exactly full so we were allowed to stay on. The staff were very friendly, the demonstration is quite brief but the best way to learn is to actually go out and fish. We did the bait fishing... More

I feel that I can't give as good a review as this place deserves so if you have family, are in reasonable fit from, you should take a look at the various events available on this large estate... We noticed sedgeways .. Jeep tours available this visit... honestly! Go and have a good look there's a lot on.

Managed to find this lovely place with breathtaking scenery to keep our two kids 6 & 13 years old entertained for the whole afternoon. We hired couple of fishing rods and kids and my husband had a fantastic time catching trouts. The limit was one fish but any more were freed again. I have taken a walk around teh lake... More

We try and get up to this area at least twice a year and really enjoy the walks that Rothiemurchus offers, we usually stay at Coylumbridge so we are very close to the excellent walks around this beautiful area.

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
