Why not give fishing a go? There are lots of lochs and rivers in the park that offer excellent angling. The River Spey is just down the road from us and offers wild salmon throughout the Summer months. The River Dulnain is directly infront of the hotel, it offers 2 fishing pools. At Muckrach we can help you organise a fishing experience and a Ghillie to guide you along the way.
