Explore Speyside

I doubt I’m the only person to have had this problem. When I search the internet to find out more about Speyside, all I get is whisky related websites. Don’t get me wrong, I love a drop of whisky but I wanted to know about the region, not the liquor. Which is a shame, because if other travellers with a willing spirit have the same experience, they’ll not discover the joys of the area. 

Book a room at the Craggen outdoors activity centre, Ardenbeg and explore the area. The hostel is in a huge old house in the historic capital of Strathspey, Grantown-on-Spey. It offers a range of rooms with between 4 and 8 bunks, two communal kitchen/dining/lounge areas and a fabulous location. The good people at Craggen have won awards themselves for the outdoor activities they offer and awards must be in the air because Speyside is up for a BBC Countryfile award in the Best Holiday Destination Category. The votes end in March so if you want to support them, get on the internet and press the button. 

Ardenbeg is perfectly situated – 15 minutes from Aviemore, 45 minutes from Inverness,  to enjoy all that the Cairngorms National Park & wider central Highlands have to offer. Perhaps we can weight some of those internet search results more towards outdoor activities and lovely landscape.
