This 3-star hotel in Nethybridge, Inverness-shire, Scotland, is a great base from which to explore the Cairngorms National Park and Speyside.

Mammals in the area include Otter, Pine Marten, Wild Cat, Mountain Hare and Red Deer. Longer trips to the Scottish coast and islands focus on seabirds as well as cetaceans.
