Inverness is only 30 miles away with the dolphins in the Moray Firth and Fort George on the coast well worth seeing.

Entering Aviemore from the South, pass Tesco on your left, head straight ahead at the next roundabout at the Red Cross Charity shop. The Shelter Stone Cottage is just up on the left side of Grampian Road, diagonally opposite The Church of Scotland. If you are coming from the North, when you see the War Memorial on your left side you are almost there!
