Kingussie is located off the main A9 road, between Aviemore and Newtonmore, nestled in Strathspey on the western side of the Cairngorm National Park. This area is popular with anglers and a hotspot for seasonal shooting, but walkers and cyclists will also have plenty to discover in the area around the village. With a High Street with various shops, hotels and bars, it is thriving community. Gow’s the butcher’s is well worth a visit for its fine meats, pies and black pudding. The Gynack river comes through the centre of the village and if you head up the hill, you discover Kingussie golf course, which is a good 18-hole parkland course. Kingussie is known for the game of shinty and games can be watched at The Dell. Nearby is the Highland Wildlife Park, which is an excellent day out for the family. With Aviemore nearby, and the Cairngorm National Park, there is much to do for an activity minded person in this area.
