Craigellachie is a National Nature Reserve near Aviemore.
A perfect destination for a stroll from Aviemore, the woodland of this reserve brings together the gentle motion of silver birch trees with the constant activity of countless insects in summer. The crags loom above the woodland like sleeping grey gia for woodland flowers and provide a home for peregrine falcons.
Visit between March and May for beautiful woodland flowers, June to September for dragonflies and butterflies and all year round for stunning panoramas of the Cairngorms.
Facilities include a series of waymarked paths for mixed abilities and mobile phone listen and learn stops.
