Explore Boat of Garten & Aviemore

We’re certain that you’ll be captivated by the beauty of our hometown…

Boat of Garten is located 9.5 km northeast of Aviemore. There was a settlement here in the 17th century known as Gart, but it wasn’t until the opening of the railway station in 1863 that the village properly developed. The railway station was named ‘Boat of Garten’ after the chain-operated ferry that ran across
the River Spey at Gartenmore. The ferry was replaced by a bridge in 1899, but the name ‘Boat of Garten’ remained.

Boat of Garten railway station closed to passengers in 1965, but since 1978 the station building and the line have been used by the Strathspey Railway Company, which operates a steam train between Aviemore and Broomhill, via Boat of Garten.

The stunning Loch Garten, which is home to an Osprey viewing center, lies to the east of Boat of Garten.
