Nethybridge — ‘the forest village’ — is situated in the heart of beautiful Strathspey in the Cairngorms National Park. It is the perfect base to explore this unique area, whatever the season!! The surrounding forests, mountains, lochs and rivers provide an amazing natural place to enjoy ‘The Great Outdoors’.

Abernethy Forest is home to the largest remnant of the Ancient Caledonian Forest and part of the wider Abernethy Nature Reserve. The thousands of acres of forest and moorland have many trails for you to explore; where you may see Crossbills, Capercaille, Red squirrel, Osprey, Deer, Pine Martin and a diverse range of flora and fauna.

For the more adventurous there are miles of mountain bike trails, skiing at the Cairngorm or Lecht ski areas, hillwalking in the Cairngorm Mountains, Canoeing on the local lochs and rivers, or sailing at Loch Morlich. If you want to learn a new skill or try a new activity there are lots of local businesses hiring equipment or providing tuition.

Nethybridge and the surrounding area are not just about adrenaline activities but a great place to explore the Whisky trail, Strathspey Steam Railway, fishing on local rivers or lochs. Landmark Forest Adventure Park is a great day out, especially for children, with a whole variety of things to do! We are only a short distance from the coastline of the Moray Firth where dolphins, porpoises and seals can all be spotted.

The village has a post office, general store and a highly recommended butcher. Within the village there is a swimming pool at the Abernethy Outdoor Centre where you can register as a member for the week and enjoy a lovely quiet pool. There is a nine hole golf course and many other excellent courses in the area. Close by are the towns of Aviemore and Grantown on Spey, both of which have a wider range of stores and shops. Within the area there are great places to eat out!
