Situated in the heart of beautiful Strathspey in the Highlands of Scotland between Aviemore and Grantown, Nethybridge is the perfect centre to enjoy the countryside of the glorious Scottish Highlands. The village of Nethybridge has been a holiday destination since Victorian times, yet it remains un-spoilt with the majority of accommodation hidden away in quiet locations next to the ancient Caledonian pine forest. The popular television series Monarch of the Glen was set in the Scottish Highlands in fictitious Glenbogle. Our previous Christmas’s here have been enjoyed by many!
