Nethy Station, converted to a hostel, is centrally situated within the Cairngorms National Park, between Aviemore and the Speyside Whisky Trail. Perfect for exploring the many activities available on mountain, river, land & sea. You'll always have Exclusive Use and it was set up specifically for groups of 12-26. We have coded locks to allow for entry by any member of the group. Enough showers and toilets for all and extra basins. Dogs are welcome and so are Stags and Hens!
Groups only but, uniquely, you have no need to worry about no-shows, nor last minute extras, because you only pay for the beds that you use so your finances are not at risk. We will even refund you if you have overpaid which is popular with charity groups! This is basic accommodation at an affordable price and popular with those who want a Highland Lodge experience at a budget price. This old station offers all that a group of students, forces, schools or family groups could expect from a bunkhouse. Narnia, The Hobbits' Room and The Shed are becoming attraction in their own right! We share a car park with the Speyside Way and just yards from the River Nethy, leading down to the River Spey a mile away.
Cycling, biking, skiing, snowboarding, sailing, kayaking, canoeing, windsurfing, white water rafting, gorge walking, zip wire, archery, rafting, hiking, mountaineering, abseiling, climbing, are just some of the activities available nearby! Landmark Forest Adventure Park is only a few miles away for a family theme park experience with its roller coaster and tree top trail. More gentle pursuits are available and you can tour the castles and attractions nearby. Sightseeing around Cawdor to Culloden; Glenfiddich to Glenlivet; Loch Ness to Lochindorb, all can be included in trips from Nethy Bridge. A day trip to Skye and Eilean Donan Castle where Highlander was filmed is popular, too. It is well-equipped, fully central heated and has two public areas and a good drying room. Most rooms have triple bunks. We now have 2 bunk rooms with outside access and no store room. We call it Narnia, as you can reach them through a wardrobe! We now also have 'The Shed', yes, it is a shed! Insulated and heated of course. Whether you self-cater, or we cook for you as a group, you will have access to the kitchen at all times.
We never ask people to share the building so you may sleep, walk, ski, board, hike, ride, cycle, fish etc. at your own convenience always enjoying sole occupancy! The station is only 200 yards from the centre of Nethy Bridge with its shop, butcher, pub and ranger centre and is also half way between two wintersports areas
Dogs are welcome but please do not let them sleep on the beds!
