Kincraig and its neighbouring communities of Alvie, Insh and Feshiebridge lie at the heart of the Scottish Highlands within the Cairngorm National Park. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty containing some of Scotland’s most treasured landscapes and rare wildlife. Vast ancient forests, hidden lochs and heather clad moorlands flank the famous River Spey and its tributaries. The snow capped hills of the Cairngorm range provide a dramatic backdrop to Kincraig’s unique setting. A setting tailored for an inspiring yet relaxing visit.
Kincraig is a true Highland village with it’s own PO and store, pub and hotels. We have a strong tradition and a vibrant community. The atmosphere is friendly and informal, allowing you to fully indulge in a less than hectic pace of life.
A diverse range of habitats support unique wildlife found nowhere else in Britain. Red Squirrel, Golden Eagles, Crested Tits and Otters are among the “locals”, an ideal surrounding for photographers and nature enthusiasts.
With Loch Insh at its centre there are plenty of year round outdoor activities and water sports for all the family; Gliding, Golf, Riding, Archery, Orienteering, and limitless cycling tracks are available throughout the seasons. A host of attractions for climbers and walkers are available in the Cairngorm National Park and in the Monadhliath Mountains. Winter sports can be enjoyed in Scotland’s premier ski resort on Cairngorm.
A visit to the Kincraig area offers the space, solitude, and freshness of the Scottish Hills, coupled with the warmth of Highland Hospitality.
There are family run hotels, guest houses, B & Bs, self catering accommodation and a caravan and campsite. There are warm cosy restaurants and a bar or two for a “wee dram”.
Historians can immerse themselves in local legend with many historic ruins, monuments and ancient battle sites. The Churches beside Lochs Alvie and Insh are listed buildings and are used regularly for worship to which all are welcome.
Surrounding estates can offer a variety of field sport activities, including grouse shooting, deer stalking and fishing on the river Spey.
Within the area there are also opportunities to visit Sheep Dog Trials, the Wild Life Park (run by Edinburgh Zoo) and an Alpine Nursery.
