  kingussie along the eastern side of Insh Marshes Bird Reserve and the river Spey. There are walks onto nearby moors, hills and forests and down to the reserve. the area also has many species of wild flowers including orchids and animals from the large red deer to the many small red squirrels, roe deer, otters and pine martens.
As in the picture opposite you will often see Roe deer in the back garden, early in the morning.
