Photo - Ailnack Gorge

The Ailnack Gorge by Tomintoul - Scotland's largest glacial meltwater gorge. The Gorge is on the Glenlivet Estate. The wide open spaces, stunning scenery and rich wildlife of Glenlivet and Strathavon provide an ideal antidote to the pace of modern living. An extensive network of waymarked trails gives easy access to the open countryside for walking, mountain biking, and horse riding. Accommodation is limited so you will never be troubled by the crowds and queues that are so often a feature of busier holiday destinations.

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.
