Grantown on Spey & Newtonmore
"The Capital of Strathspey"
Grantown is in the centre of the Scottish Highlands and sits on the northern edge of the Cairngorm National Park, which is an area I hope to visit in depth sometime in the future. For now this is just a tiny look at a Highland Town which saw its existence as a planned Georgian Town in 1780. We also stopped in Newtonmore an other Highland Town, or rather were stopped here by the Police, on our way home from the West Coast to the East Coast. We really did get a Highland welcome here!
