Grantown on Spey
The perfect base from which to explore
Grantown on Spey is in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park and only 14 miles from Aviemore and 35 miles from Loch Ness. It is surrounded by hills, mountains and woodlands and sits on the edge of the River Spey. Below are some of the attractions and sights that we enjoy.
Grantown on Spey has a wonderful High Street and Town Square full of small, independent retailers. You won't find any large chains here! Shop for unique gifts, clothing, souvenirs and delicious food. Please support our High Street during your stay!
