Stretching from the River Spey to the high mountain plateau, Rothiemurchus sits within the Cairngorms National Park.
Much of the forest is within the Rothiemurchus Estate, in the ownership of the Grant family since the 1540.

Oh what a perfect way to spend time on holiday. Such a wonderful experience in an amazing setting. My husband Tony and I really enjoyed quad biking, it was thrilling and I could not stop smiling. Ellie our instructor and guide was wonderful, so friendly and helpful.
Fantastic experience. Quad bike trail was amazing especially the trail path. The bike was a bit heavy as compared to my previous experience of ATV and MTV at different locations but it was manageable. The price can be a little less. I paid £54 for one person per trail. My son enjoyed Little Landys ride a lot and the coordinator cum trainer was superb.
