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 - see separate page on Laggan Heritage. There is an abundance of wild flowers, plants and trees along with excellent walking and cycling opportunities.
The 90's hit BBC drama series "Monarch of the Glen" was set in the Scottish Highlands in fictitious Glenbogle with much of the filming done in Laggan and the surrounding area. As well as having the opportunity to explore 'Glenbogle', and to see the stunning scenic locations used in the next 007 Bond movie (No Time to Die) and the Netflix TV series The Crown (series 4 has many scenes from the Laggan area), Laggan is an excellent base for touring by car and an ideal location for all outdoor activities, including fishing in the River Spey and surrounding lochs, Hill Walking and Mountaineering, Golf with several courses in the area, Pony Trekking, Mountain Biking and Ski-ing.
