Highland Village of Carrbridge
Nestling in the very heart of the Scottish Highlands is the delightful age-old village of Carrbridge.
The first of the Scottish ski villages, the history of this small but lively community dates back many hundreds of years with its past reflected in the curved arches of its ancient packhorse bridge – the oldest stone bridge in the Highlands.
Surrounded by spectacular mountain and moorland scenery and within easy reach of a host of exciting tourist attractions, Carrbridge has a great deal to offer both summer and winter visitors. Among the attractions that have helped put Carrbridge on the map is the Landmark Forest Adventure Park (all our guests get a 10% discount) with its wild water coaster, steam powered saw mill and tree top trail set in an ancient pine forest. The village also has its own pony trekking centre, challenging nine hole golf course, bowling green and there are opportunities nearby to try out many sporting or outdoor activities. While the best of Scottish skiing can be found on the nearby snow capped tops of Cairngorm, there is a seemingly never ending list of activities from mountain bike riding and watersports to golf, fishing, clay pigeon shooting, hill walking, bird watching and climbing.
Carrbridge, which is also renowned as the home of both traditional and contemporary Celtic music and song, also provides an ideal base for exploring other areas of the Highlands from the Highland capital of Inverness to Loch Ness, the Malt Whisky Trail, Royal Deeside, the Moray Coast, the West Highlands and Skye.
