The Cairngorms National Park is renowned for its beauty and there’s no better way for the family to explore it than a trip on a heritage steam railway. From your departure at Aviemore Station, the Strathspey Railway will take you on an unforgettable journey through untamed moorland and dense forests alongside the meandering River Spey, with the sounds and smells of the railway offering an authentic insight into the bygone era of steam travel. Along the route, you can disembark at Boat of Garten or Broomhill Station (instantly recognisable to fans of Monarch of the Glen) or, for a delightful culinary experience, enjoy on-board dining.

Distance from Strathspey Lodge: 9 minute drive
