Owner description: Rothiemurchus welcomes you every day of the year. Be inspired by the scenery, enjoy relaxing or adventurous outdoor activities, share our passion for delicious estate produce and caravan or camp on the edge of the ancient forest. At the forefront of nature conservation and one of Scotland’s leading tourist attractions, Rothiemurchus Estate is a much loved community asset. We are at the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, just outside Aviemore, somewhere quite different and special – a jewel of the Highlands of Scotland.

We stayed at the caravan park (lovely in the trees and excellent washrooms) and booked a landrover safari. This was really interesting and at £30pp excellent value.

I had never been shooting before, the guide explained everything fully, gave tips and we were treated like royalty.

We have walked here several times with our young kids (5 and 2) and really enjoy it. You can do short walks or link walks together to make them longer which is ideal for us. There is lots to see on the walks and the paths are good. You can also cycle if you prefer. Walking and cycling maps are available at the visitor centre.

My 6 year old daughter had been asking me for some time to take her fishing. I took her to the Fishery at Rothiemurchus. For a very reasonable fee, we were given equipment, bait, expert tuition and the opportunity to fish. We spent an excellent afternoon there. To cap it off my daughter caught a fish which one of the local hotels we were staying at cooked for her. I can highly recommend this for all ages. Patient, expert staff made it a very enjoyable experience.

Tons to do in Rothiemurchus for the whole family.
We all loved the Visitor Centre with farm shop and attached gift shop and can highly recommend the cakes and, most especially, the Scottish shortbread made by the wonderful chef, Julie, which simply melts in the mouth! Best ever! (Walkers Shortbread?? Pah!)
All along the road up to Cairngorm mountain are numerous activities to keep everyone amused including the Tree Zone (loved by husband and our 2 teenagers - I wimped out!) and bike hire centre, reindeer centre, sled dogs, fishery and, of course, beautiful Loch Morlich with its beach at one end. (Circumference is about 3.5 miles to walk/run round.)
There are a number of car parks along the road adjoining footpaths taking you up Cairngorm mountain, which used to be free of charge but now, disappointingly, they are Pay & Display. That said, it won't stop us from visiting again and again...

Recommended.
