Auchendean Lodge enjoys some of the best inland views possible.
Overlooking Nethy Bridge which nestles into the Abernethy Forest, we also see wider views across Strathspey to the Cromdale Hills and Cairngorm Mountains where we see the tops of 8 major mountains
Straight to the front of Auchendean we see the long line of the rolling Cromdale Hills then the view carries on to Ben Avon with its tors; Beinn a’ Bhuird and Beinn a’ Chaorainn; Bynack More with Bynack Beg on its shoulder, A’ Choinneach; Beinn Mheadhoin, Cairn Gorm, the Northern Corries, we just see the snout of Cairn Toul, then Braeriach at the far right of our view.
In front of all this, we have the Meall a’ Bhuachaille, Creagan Gorm, Craiggowrie ridge.
In the fields below Auchendean the fastest flowing river in Britain, the River Spey.
The Strathspey Steam Railway adds a nostalgic element when their trains change around to pull the carriages back to Aviemore from Broomhill Station – which doubled as the BBC’s ‘Glenbogle Station’ of ‘Monarch of The Glen’.
