Local Highland Games, such as Braemar, Aberlour, Dufftown, Strathdon, Tomintoul and Nethybridge are wonderful days out being part of a very Scottish Tradition. You can hear the Pipebands, watch the tossing of the caber, where the strongest compete to see who can throw a telephone pole the furthest. Also, children being judged in traditional dress, performing Highland Dancing. This makes a wonderful day out to be part of Scottish Tradition.
A day or week's fishing can be organised, whether you are interested in catching salmon or trout. We are situated on the River Avon, which is the main tributary of the River Spey and so a perfect place to stay close by.
There are many golf courses nearby including, Ballindalloch, Grantown on Spey, Lossiemouth and Castle Stuart, where the Scottish Open is taking place for the second year.

A branch of The Speyside Way, a long distance walk running from the source of the Spey near Aviemore, to it's mouth, at SpeyBay in the Moray Firth, passes close to Glendalloch.
