Easter Egg Hunt

On Sunday the 21st of April our Rangers will put on an Easter Egg Hunt at Loch an Eilein. Last years hunt was very popular so we have asked the Easter Bunny to bring us even more eggs this year!

Meet some friendly locals

We have a variety of Ranger-lead activities that let you get up close to some iconic Scottish animals.  Hairy Coo Safari takes you to The Dell Farm just a few minutes drive from the Rothiemurchus Centre, where one of our friendly and knowledgeable rangers will introduce you to our herd of Highland Coos. Or how about a chance to Feed the Deer? They will be delighted to see you, especially as you will be given a handful of their favourite food! If you want to do both and learn more about the history of Rothiemurchus you can take our Land Rover tour, the minimum age for this tour is 12 due to booster seat requirements.
