Cairngorms Park North

The north of the Cairngorms National Park is dominated by the course of the River Spey which carries on from Aviemore in the West Park through Boat of Garten and  onto Granton on Spey. A major tributary of the Spey is the river Carr which also dominates the north. 

This is very much the start of the Spey Whisky region with distilleries and their depositories dotting some of the landscape. The river Spey is important to those distilleries as it is to tourism and of course to anglers who come from all over the world to fish for the mighty salmon.

The ares has lots to do both organised and also by way of reserves and the great outdoors.

The RSPB has a lot of interest in the surrounding area as Boat of Garten saw the return of the Osprey to the UK over 50 years ago. There are now numerous breading pairs throughout much of central and western Scotland.
