Sorry, Not really - but you could learn to Fly Fish there. It's a great sport, the Fishery is a very beautiful, peaceful place and they have excellent fly fishing instructors. Best way to wait for an Osprey.

Thank you, yes there are 50+ Highland Cattle in the fields here, but they can be un-cooperative, some distance from the road and not reliably easy to see. The Rothiemurchus Ranger led Hairy Coo and Safari tours enable you to... More

A few questions about the sleeper trains... (11 Replies)
It was suggested here on the forums that taking the Caladoneon sleeper would be a fun way to get up to Scotland from London, and we're strongly leaning toward doing so. I was wondering if you could give me a bit of feedback on a couple of possible travel iteneraries, especially concerning the sleeper. On first research, I was thinking of taking the sleeper to Fort William where we could then catch some breakfast, then take the scenic train ride to Mallaig. We'd then take the ferry to...More

Response fromMountainMeg|
Can't help much with you enquiries about London to Fort William because I have never travelled that route by Caledonian Sleeper. However I did Aberdeen to London last year and advise you to make sure you are wrapped up well to sleep. You are given one top sheet and a thin blanket to keep you warm. I was frozen for the first part of the journey (I had top bunk) even with the heating on. Maybe there was a problem with our berth which others didn't have, but I really was very cold. By the...More

Hi You don't mention how you are travelling on your fist day - Edinburgh - Royal mile etc. You do say 'not driving' - but wondered if you knew the Rosslyn Chapel is about 8 miles out of Edinburgh? Day 2 seems o.k. as do 4 and 5. Presume you are back to Oban on day 6, I would suggest that you go through Glencoe on your journey to Fort William, staying overnight there ( can recommend the Clan McDuff Hotel) an early start on day 7 - you could do the train to Mallaig ( if you haven't had time...More
Taking dog to Rothiemurchus near Aviemore - what can we do? (3 Replies)
Hi, we have booked for a week to go to Rothiemurchus near Aviemore. Our 4-legged friend will be with us. Apart from walking, is there anything else we can do where we can take our dog with us (activities etc). Also, how dog friendly is the area - pubs etc?

Response fromwoodybark|
Rothiemurchus is a very dog friendly area and the walks around Loch an Eilein are given over to dog walkers but be aware there are a lot of places you are asked to keep your dog on a lead or under close control as per the country code. Many walks are not fenced and the sheep and cattle are controlled only by cattle grids so you may encounter these animals roaming anywhere without being fenced in especially on Rothiemurchus estate. You are not allowed to take your dog on the bus as far as I...More
