The River Dee and River Don, located near the lodges, are classed as Scotland’s great fishing rivers and well known for the world’s best salmon fishing beats. It doesn’t stop there as the area boasts a multitude of lochs teeming with life.
Cairngorm Lodges have multiple forestry and woodland walks starting right outside your cabin door with many more within a couple miles of the lodges. The hillwalking routes in the area will really get the blood pumping with something for all levels of experience.
We are animal lovers at Cairngorm Lodges and we welcome horses to stay because our surroundings are perfect for quality riding along the riverside, woodland and mountains. Don’t worry if you don’t have your own horse there are Equestrian centres in the area.
Looking to turn your walk into a real adventure? We are a participating business in the “Explore Royal Deeside GeoTour” to offer our guests a high-tech treasure hunt for the whole family. All you need is a handheld GPS and a taste for nature.
Royal Deeside and the Cairngorms are regarded as the best in Scotland for cycling and mountain biking. From gentle cycling along flat and quiet country lanes to arduous mountain trails, the area has something to satisfy every level of cyclist – from the absolute novice to the committed enthusiast.
The Cairngorms is rich in Scottish history so the culture vultures among us can visit the neighbouring castles or depending on season head along to a Scottish Highland Games or two.
