through the heart of Aviemore and Spey Valley, but there is an alternative - to
take the scenic route. The quick route from south is to follow the motorway to
Perth, then journey up the A9 passing by the spectacular Grampian Mountains -
this will take about two hours. Alternatively, from Glasgow, follow the A82 up
the side of Loch Lomond, over Rannoch Moor and through Glencoe to Fort William
and on to Spean Bridge. Then go by Glen Spean and Loch Laggan Into Badenoch at
Newtonmore and follow the old A9 through the villages of Kingussie and Kincraig
The Glenlivet Estate is located between the ladder
and the Cromdale Hills in the Cairngorms National Park.
