Active Outdoors in the Cairngorms
Boots on, it’s time for some fresh, holiday air. You could step out of your cottage door, walk round the back and straight up Ben Rinnes if you wanted! Beautiful Corbett, check; and no car necessary. The whole area is perfect for dog-walking too.
Out and About: Bluefolds’ Style
Walk and Cycle Glenlivet
Trip 1: Glenlivet Estate, stretching between Bluefolds and Tomintoul, has a superb selection of hill, forest and river trails for walking and cycling. They also have stunning Mountain Bike trails. If you’re a seriously active group, most organised outdoor sports and activities are based in the Cairngorms, in and around Aviemore.
Walk and Kayak Cairngorms
Trip 2: Enjoy the beautiful drive to Aviemore. Start the day by sailing or kayaking on Loch Morlich followed by lunch at the Glenmore café. Spend the afternoon hiking around Glenmore, walking with the reindeer and – if you’re brave enough – a cold water dook in Loch Morlich itself to finish your day.
Wildlife and Pony Trekking
Trip 3: Too much sport the day before? Then head out to the Loch Garten RSPB Centre for some truly spectacular wildlife, Rothiemurchus Estate for lunch and perhaps something less strenuous like clay-pigeon shooting or a pony trek? Finish the day by heading up Cairngorm Mountain on the funicular and enjoying a well-deserved hot chocolate at the top.
We hope you get out there and make the most of our great outdoors; Bluefolds awaits you with a warm fire and those tremendous views to help you relax.
