The area boasts wonderful scenery with excellent walks and the local fishing association offers salmon and trout fishing on the River Spey.

The traditional highland town of Grantown on Spey is approximately 4 miles away, where an excellent range of shopping facilities, hotels and guesthouses, primary and secondary schools, a community hospital, health centre and dentist can be found. Sporting facilities, including 18 hole golf course, health centre with swimming pool, tennis club, bowling green and football pitch are also available within the town.
