Point of Interest
“Enjoy views of the stunning Cairngorms National Park from the Strathspey Steam Railway. Running from Aviemore to Broomhill (Glenbogle) Station (or visa versa) you can alight at Boat of Garten and enjoy the village before reboarding the train to complete you journey. Light and full dining options also available”

Art Gallery
“If you love art this is a must visit - Kyla Ball has created an intriguing gallery with a changing display of pieces for sale from local and British artists - from large paintings to small quirky print runs, wood turning and ceramics. Some great contemporary work - no tartan gimmickry here.”
