Craigellachie National Nature Reserve ***

In this region: <<<<<  >>>>>


This reserve encompasses a fantastic mixture of birch woodland, open glades and tree-fringed lochs, rising to a craggy summit with superb views out across the Cairngorms National Park. Enjoy the unexpected peace and solitude to be found here just minutes from the main road in Aviemore.

The woodland of this reserve brings together the gentle motion of silver birch trees with the constant activity of countless insects in summer.  The crags loom above the woodland like sleeping grey giants and provide a home for peregrine falcons.
