River Spey Canoeing and Family Paddling with Cairngorms Activities

Join us for an idyllic and gentle paddle on the picturesque River Spey. With the beautiful Cairngorm peaks as your backdrop, paddle this majestic river with your family or friends in stable Canadian canoes. Your guide will show you how to manoeuvre your boats before you head off to enjoy a guided tour, spotting wildlife and relaxing in the beautiful natural surroundings as you go. Suitable for ages 7+ years, you’ll be provided with all the kit you need for a safe and enjoyable paddling experience. We'll head out to our start point by mini-bus and after a relaxing meander downriver, we'll end up back at Craggan Sands at the centre. For families with younger children, our Family Paddling sessions are a great alternative. Taking place on our purpose-built paddling pond you'll get the opportunity to practice paddling in a variety of crafts, including Canadian canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddleboards, all with instruction and guidance from our friendly and knowledgable instructors. Our Family Paddling sessions are suitable for those aged 18+ months plus and take place in a great paddling environment for beginners.

Disc Golf and Foot Golf with Cairngorms Activities

Here in the Highlands we offer traditional Golf in our beautiful setting alongside the River Spey and some unique golf-inspired activities where you can tee off with a twist! Our well-maintained 9-hole par 3 course comes with a backdrop of the Cromdale Hills and the Cairngorms and is designed to suit beginners to the seasoned golfer. For those looking for something a bit different, try our Disc Golf or Footgolf. Disc Golf is played like traditional golf, but instead of a ball and clubs, using a disc (frisbee). The disc is thrown from a tee to the ‘hole’, a specially designed basket that catches the disc. Our addictive Foot Golf follows the same concept as golf, but with bigger balls! Players kick the football from tee to football-sized hole in as few shots as possible. With all our golf activities you can choose from 9 or 18 holes. No need to book with these ‘pay and play’ activities, unless you’re a group then we advise you to book in advance.

The Lazy Duck Homestead

A luxury eco cabin in the heart of Lazy Duck. Come and stay in our home from home in the Cairngorms National Park. “Thank you for a perfect stay in this wonderful, magical place. It has been the perfect balance of slow outdoor living amongst nature with every home comfort. We will be back for sure.” Anna & David, February 2022 Soak up the morning sun from the verandah while feeding your friendly feathered neighbours, a flock of hens who cluck and scratch for your attention. Forest bathe in your hammock as deer peep through the woods and red squirrels dart to and fro. Enjoy seasonal produce from our polytunnel and freshly laid eggs. When the sun goes down, cook, eat, drink and chat until the stars come out.

The Lazy Duck Ducks Nest

Embraced by the forest and on the bank of our duck pond: our waterside eco lodge in the Cairngorms National Park. “Totally loved every second of our second visit to the Ducks Nest, just what we needed and we’re already planning the next visit. Such a cozy and relaxed part of the world! Thank you for the warm welcome and relaxed atmosphere. We love what you have created. I’m sure the regular red squirrel has a watch, 8am visits on the dot!” Graeme & Barbara, January 2023 This luxury hide offers wildlife photography opportunities and wildlife viewing at all times of the year. Your neighbours are a friendly flock of Aylesbury ducks who welcome attention when you choose to feed them from your veranda. Stretch out on the veranda in the morning sun to sound of the stream, delight in the ducks going about their business. Snuggle down in a Hebridean box bed with windows to the forest and the night sky. Fall asleep to the sound of a babbling brook.
