So pleased you enjoyed Rothiemurchus Farm Shop - the soup is freshly made in The Druie café next door and we've just found a new baker and think their bread is much better - all our fillings. Hope you can visit again.

Really good range of activities - biking, clay pigeon shooting, archery, treezone, quad bikes, walking, and nearby water sports centre (though that isn't part of Rothiemuchus itself). It really is a beautiful party of the world.More
