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.
