Places to Visit

Although Dalfaber offers many and varied onsite activities, there are many different activities to be enjoyed in the Cairngorm National Park, surrounding towns and woodlands.

Explore the magnificent Cairngorm National Park, the UK’s largest National Park, http://visitcairngorms.com/ with its wide range of attractions from whiskey distilleries to castles and gardens.

The RSPB have a visitor centre at Loch Garten nearby and ospreys can be sighted usually in springtime http://www.rspb.org.uk/reserves/guide/l/lochgarten/directions.aspx  There are many birds to watch during the seasons as some of my photos show

       

CairnGorm Mountain can also be explored by taking the funicular railway to the top and either returning by train, mountain bike or walking down some of the hill paths. In winter there are different ski runs for all abilities   http://www.cairngormmountain.org/

Cycling on and off road is a great way to get around and keep fit with National Cycle Network route 7 and sections of the Speyside Way suitable for cycling along with the many forestry trails and tracks.  http://visitcairngorms.com/aviemore-and-the-cairngorms.html  Bikes or electric bikes can be hired too locally. http://www.electricbicyclenetwork.com/hiring/cairngorms/    http://www.bothybikes.co.uk/
