The village of Laggan, situated in the Central Highlands of Scotland is surrounded by the Monadhliath and Grampian mountain ranges and near the source of the River Spey, one of Scotland's finest fishing rivers. Staying here provides the opportunity to explore the peaceful, majestic countryside with the chance to see a wide variety of wildlife from Golden Eagle or Osprey to Red Deer Stag and Pine Martin, as well as understand the significant history and archaeology of the area from the "45" and General Wade's road through the Corrieyairack Pass to the ancient Pictish Fort at Dun Da Lamh - a scheduled monument site.  There is an abundance of wild flowers, plants and trees along with excellent walking and cycling opportunities.
