    Cycle route to Boat of Garten

    by deeper_blue Written Oct 7, 2012

    This is a 5.5 mile stretch along the Speyside way. It's a very pleasant ride or walk, it gets a bit hilly in the middle, where you get a good view of the Cairngorms. At the Boat of Garten you can see the steam railway.

    Never has Scottish Wilderness been so Accessible

    by scotlandscotour Written Apr 29, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Aviemore is the gateway to the wilderness and beauty of the Cairngorms National Park - because of its great transport links.

    Aviemore is in the broad wooded valley of the River Spey which is the only eastern gap through the Highlands and so has road and rail passing by beneath the rocky crag called Craigellachie - squeezing through as the mighty River meanders close to the slope.

    So the main route north - from Edinburgh and Glasgow is the A9 road and Aviemore is a vital resting point on route. This means car, hitch, and coach is easy.

    The train is great, from all Scotland's Cities to Inverness, passing through Aviemore (with a beautiful Victorian Station and a separate Steam Railway!)

    There are 4 airports from 1 - 3 hours away from Aviemore: Inverness, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow, plus Glasgow Prestwick a bit further south.
    Ryanair and Easyjet are now offering ridiculously cheap flights from London and other European Cities - and other companies are having to compete - so now is the time to take short breaks north!!!

    Car hire is easy to arrange - as is cycle hire if you have more time! - but if you want to bring your own car across the water - check out the super fast ferries: Zebrugge to Rosyth and Belfast to Stranraer.

    If its too quiet for you

    If you feel Aviemore is a little too quiet for you, catch the train to Inverness, (recently made into a city).
    There's plenty to do, I was here once before but I don't remember much about it, the Eastgate Shopping Centre was good I remember.
    Also if you're planning on visiting Loch Ness tours are operated from here.
