Invereshie & Inshriach National Nature Reserve

Nature Centres & Reserves

Perched on the edge of the Cairngorm plateau, twisted and gnarled pines mark your passage from peaceful pinewood to exposed mountain. Red squirrel, pine marten, crested tit and crossbill all make this expanding wood their home, along with buzzing insect life in the boggy areas. Up on the plateau, battered by the wind and snow, look for the resilient dotterel, ptarmigan and mountain hare. Up here, you may even catch a glimpse of a golden eagle soaring overhead.


Road Directions

From the south, leave the A9 at the intersection with the B970 to Feshiebridge. From Kincraig, take the road opposite the memorial stone in the village, which leads down to the wooden bridge over the River Spey. Continue about a mile to reach a T-junction. Turn left for Feshiebridge. Cross the river in Feshiebridge and turn right along the road towards Achlean. There is a car park four miles along this road on the left.
