Things to Do

Enjoy relaxing in your log cabin, soaking in the hot tub and taking in the breath taking scenery from the doorstep. However if you are after a more active break then you’ll find Glenbeag Mountain Lodges are in a perfect location to explore the Scottish countryside from, tour nearby towns, castles etc or head for a serious walk up a munro from the front door.

Situated on a hillside at the meeting of four glens within the Cairngorm National Park, the cabins are a good central base to participate in a wide range of outdoor activities including walking, skiing / snowboarding, mountain biking and golfing. Local business’s provide the opportunity for outdoor adventure and field sport pursuits as well.

The Glenshee Outdoor Adventure Guide is a great resource for high and low level walks and biking trails in the area.

The Welcome to Perthshire Guide (100 pages) by Landmark Press covers the whole of Perthshire for activities local and further a field.

Tour Royal Deeside from Glenshee on the A93, the highest main road in Britain, once one of the most notorious, with the feared Devil’s Elbow and its 1 in 3 gradient. At the top you find Glenshee Ski Centre, located just 6 miles away from the cabins.
