Directions to Upper Finlarig Cottages

From the South

Following the main route from the south into the Highlands on the A9 take the A95 just past Aviemore which is signposted to Grantown-on-Spey. Follow this road until you see signposts to Dulnain Bridge, three miles before Grantown. On entering the village you will come over the bridge to a ‘T’ junction with signs to Carrbridge and Grantown. In front are the local Post Office and garage. Take a right toward Grantown and before you have got out of second gear almost a left just past the garage. (If you reach the church you have gone too far and missed the turning).

The road climbs quite steeply, with trees cut down to the right and left, and then levels out with wonderful views of the Cairngorm Mountains to the left. After just over half a mile from the village you will see an old track on the right with ‘Upper Finlarig’ marked on a tree on a slate sign. Go up to the top of the track at the end of which is a courtyard. Your cottage is off this.

It will be obvious if you miss the old track as you will begin going up a very steep and extremely rough track, which is a dead-end. This is not as complicated as it sounds and most folk find it ok!

From the North

Come off the A9 at signposts for Carrbridge and Grantown and take the A938 into Dulnain Bridge, before turning left just past the garage.
