Learn to windsurf or dinghy-sail, take a canoe on the Spey, go pony-trekking (the sport was invented here), shoot clays, fish, golf – or go walking. There’s a huge choice in the Cairngorms National Park.
No where else in-land has such great sandy beaches. Loch Morlich, with a wide stretch of fine sand beside the pine trees, is the place to be on a hot sunny day. Loch Laggan in the west has an equally large beach accessed from the A86, at the east end of the loch.
With such spectacular terrain, there are plenty of adventure and activity operators in the Cairngorms National Park, offering courses and organised experiences in everything from extreme winter survival to watersports.
