Visit the Macallan Distillery at Craigellachie
The distillery is situated close to the village of Craigellachie, about 50 minutes by car on the A95 from Ryvoan Lodge.
The Macallan Distillery and Visitor Experience sits above the river Spey. It is a must for visitors to this part of Scotland. A truly world-class venue.
There is the opportunity for over 18s to sample the single malt whisky but the tour is great for all ages.
Go for a bike ride
There are car-free routes from Ryvoan Lodge to suit all ages and abilities.
Here are some stills and video from a recent cycle. Our circular trip of around 3 hours took us past the RSPB’s Forest Lodge in the Abernethy Forest, Tulloch Moor, the RSPB Loch Garten Nature Reserve (home of the Osprey Centre), the Speyside Way and the Nethy Bridge village trails in the Abernethy Forest.
Explore the nature on your doorstep
From our location on the edge of the Abernethy Forest, why not come to the Cairngorms and see nature first-hand.
2019 sees Nethy Bridge host the BBC Two, The Watches series; Winterwatch, Springwatch and Autumnwatch.
Ryvoan Lodge gives excellent access to the Cairngorms National Park. There is every chance you will be able to catch sight of the stars of the show; golden and white-tailed eagles, red squirrels, black grouse, ptarmigan, capercaillie and pine martins. The presenters are here for the three series but these animals are resident all year!
