Adventures in and around The Boat Country Inn.

Adventures in and around The Boat Country Inn.

Being situated in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park is in itself a blessing, but to have so many activities on our doorstep is an added bonus. 

The countryside is beautiful on its own, so for our guests, just a simple walk and picnic has always been a favourite day out. However, as we are opening back up, more and more activities can be enjoyed! 

Picking only a handful of adventures has been difficult; however, we have chosen these to give our guests a simple glimpse of what’s on offer. Whether you are travelling alone or with family, there is something for everyone to enjoy! 

Fun for the Kids!

Little Landy’s at Rothiemurchus – let your kids take the driving seat and head off on an exciting off-road adventure on their purpose-built 4×4 track designed specifically for kids. Taking the wheel of the brilliant replica land rovers, each young driver will have the chance to learn to steer and navigate the course tackling various obstacles along the way.

There are so many activities at Rothiemurchus to choose from!

They won’t know they’re making memories to last a lifetime, and they’ll know they are having fun!
