A vibrant town nestled by the River Spey, Kingussie is the hidden gem in the glorious crown of Cairngorms National Park. In this land of supernatural calm and mystery, summer cycling gives way to winter skiing, and golfing, fishing, and hiking fill out the rest of the calendar. Explore the ruins of the early 18th century Ruthven Barracks, watch dolphins jump out of the deep blue waters of the Moray Coast, or stand in the shadow of Britain's highest peak, Ben Nevis. No trip to the Scottish Highlands is complete without a visit to the area’s most famous resident, Nessie the Loch Ness monster. Don’t worry though; we hear she’s just as friendly as the rest of the locals.
