Or join in a course learning new sporting skills such as dinghy sailing, mountaineering or mountain biking. Sit back and take a ride on a steam train, or take a tour of the famous whisky distilleries of the Strathspey, or enjoy a round of golf at one of the golf courses in the area such as here at Newtonmore.
