A Nature & Ancient Sites in Strathspey
- Nature Site
Directly to the west of Aviemore is the hill of Craigellachie, the lower slopes of which are cloaked in mature birch woodland. Scenic trails through the birchwood provide fine views across Aviemore and Strathspey to the Cairngorms. You may even spot peregrine falcons, which regularly nest on the cliff here. Take the track between the Youth Hostel and the Caravan Park in Aviemore. Access the reserve via the subway under the A9 trunk road.

The Strathspey area strictly speaking includes the whole Spey valley as it runs North-East From the North-west corner of the Cairngorms through the whisky trail towns of Aberlour and Fochabers. However the classicly beautiful and most commonly visited part of Strathspey is the area from Aviemore through Grantown-on-Spey and Boat of Garden. David Attenborough described this part of Scotland as one of his favourite parts of the world.
