The Cairngorms National Park, known as the outdoor capital of the North, is in one of the most accessible parts of the Highlands having excellent links to both North and South via the A9 trunk road and the main line railway. The airport in Inverness is approximately 50 miles away, giving access to all the main cities and further afield. The surrounding countryside is a haven for wildlife, with red deer, badgers and squirrels amongst some of the abundant inhabitants. There is a wealth of excellent rural sporting facilities, such as stalking and grouse shooting, along with trout and salmon fishing. There are also many outdoor pursuits available within the National Park, such as hill walking, climbing, mountain biking, wind surfing, ski-ing and snowboarding. There are also a number of renowned golf courses in the area – including the championship Spey Valley course in Aviemore – all within stunning countryside settings.

The village itself has a post office and general store, popular village pub and community hall.
