Fab views, coffee shops and gift shops excellent especially Rothiemurcus tea room - this was probably and old school house. Food was excellent and service great. There was snow on the mountains and we were able to walk a short way into them from the road.

Excellent for views, walking, wildlife spotting and photography. Again, the coffee shop was excellent.

I've was lucky enough to spend a fair amount of time at stunning Rothiemurchus and I was blown away by how beautiful it is and how exceptionally well run it is.

The estate is beautiful beyond words. The views from around the estate will live long in my memories. It's incredibly well managed and trails are very well marked and in immaculate order. There is so much to do and it caters for so many levels of visitor.

I was made to feel very welcome everywhere I went. The staff are all very well turned out and super friendly, whether at the visitor centre, the restaurant with great food and atmosphere or just parking at stunning Loch an Eilein.

Can't wait to come back to this little slice of paradise.

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.
