Forest, mountain and moody skies oversee this stretch of the A889 road, connecting the west coast to the spinal cord of Scotland, the A9. A drive through this part of theHighlands is filled with the sweet scent of Scots pine and vistas that sweep over hill and vale.
Tucked between the Monadhliath and Grampian mountain ranges is the village of Laggan, situated within Cairngorms National Park. An exploration of the countryside welcomes an abundance of wildflowers and trees, as well as regular sightings of the elusive golden eagle, osprey and red deer stag.
Nearby in the Strathmashie Forest, Laggan Wolftrax is a haven of outdoor adventure, with a series of highly technical mountain bike trails, over 35km in total.
