Everything you need to know about The Osprey Village is here!
Our lovely village is set amongst heather clad hills and native woodland within the Cairngorms National Park. Abundant wildlife, magnificent scenery, many outdoor and leisure activities and a traditional Highland welcome are all to be found here.
Play our superb James Braid 18-hole golf course or fish the Spey. Wonderful bird watching opportunities abound; tranquil woods and dramatic hillsides to walk, climb or ski are within easy reach. Cycle on excellent tracks and quiet roads – the Speyside Way meets the Sustrans cycle route in the centre of the village. Enjoy our Community Garden and be entertained by the many activities in the Community Hall. Take a trip on a scenic steam railway or in a canoe!
Lying adjacent to the River Spey, Boat of Garten is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty, centrally located in the Highlands of Scotland and is the perfect place from which to explore the Highlands or simply unwind.
The Boat, as the village is known, offers a range of accommodation to suit everyone in and around the village. All are privately owned with each establishment offering their own style of Highland Hospitality. Many offer drying rooms and bike racks and welcome walkers and cyclists, however wet or muddy!
If you’re visiting us from Aviemore or Nethybridge, why not arrive in style on the Strathspey Railway Steam Train? Have lunch or a picnic, visit our ducks on Milton Loch, relax in our Community Garden and view our sculptures in Station Square, or take the children to let off steam at our newly refurbished play park next to the Community Hall.
Our Community Hall is home to many local groups and is available for hire for events, conferences, concerts and weddings.
Residents can find local information in the Community pages – if you can’t find what you want, have some information to add or would like to give us some feedback, please email us.
Scott Henderson, our Woodlands Ranger, will be running free woodlands walks on Mondays and Thursdays until the end of August. Details of our Woodlands project and a photo of our Capercaillie can be seen here.
