Abernethy is ancient, wild and immeasurably special. 

Reaching from the River Nethy to the top of Ben Macdui (Britain’s second highest mountain), it boasts ancient Caledonian pineforest, sweeping moorland, vital wetland and dramatic mountains. 

Loch Garten is the place that ospreys returned to in the 1950s after a period of extinction in the UK – they still return here every spring to breed. The Loch Garten Nature Centre (formally the Osprey Centre) has views onto the nest, plus hi-definition remote viewing. Red squirrels, bank voles, crested tits and lots of other woodland birds visit the feeders.
