May Blog a Lodge - Birchwood Lodge

Hi All, Well the weather is certainly being kind to us and long may it continue.

This month we are looking at Birchwood Lodge, in the small village of Kincraig, 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.

Birchwood Lodge has 5 bedrooms and can sleep up 12, with an Outdoor Hot Tub, Log Stove and stunning finish this really is one of the perfect family gathering points.

Kincraig is situated perfectly 6 miles south of Aviemore and 6 miles north of Kingussie, Kincraig is home to the Kincraig Wildlife Park run by the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland where visitors can discover Scotland's wildlife as well as endangered animals of the world's mountain and tundra regions. Home to Polar Bear, Arctic Fox , Armur Tiger and much much much more. Birchwood is only a few miles from Loch Insh Watersports Centre where you can Windsurfing, Sailing, Kayaking and again much much more or even if you just fancy a meal in the Boathouse Restaurant On the shores of Loch Insh, recently voted one of the top five views from any restaurant in Europe. 

Kincraig is perfectly situated for a variety of sports from golf, gliding, canoeing, clay pigeon shooting and of course mountain bike trekking. No visit to this area would not be complete with out going to Alvie Estate and really enjoying the Highlands at its best.

Kincraig is home to its own post office, general store, pub and hotel. A visit to the Suie Hotel/Bar or even the Ossian ensures you fully understand the term Highland Hospitality.

All of this and only 6 miles from Aviemore where you can come in and enjoy the rest of what the area has to offer, for more information on this Lodge or other please call the Office on 01479 812266 or email us at gnl@greatnorthlodges.co.uk.
