The River Spey and Speyside Way both run right past the golf course and the Dava Way is nearby, so we are also easily accessible for those on foot or bike, and paddlers for that matter.
For those coming in from further afield, Craggan Outdoors is only 45 minutes from Inverness Airport.

Please see our map below or find us on Google Maps. Our postcode is PH26 3NT, but as this covers a wide area and different systems can direct to varying places, we do suggest that a bit of common sense is employed once you get close. It’s amazing how many people drive right past the highly visible golf course, kayaking pond, and big purple signs because the satnav told them to go somewhere else. If your satnav tells you to go anywhere other than turning in at the big purple Craggan Outdoors sign, then stop following it & turn in at the sign instead!
Please note that if you’re coming to our Glenbeg Bunkhouse and Bothy, these are located at Glenbeg, 1.5 miles up the hill on the other side of the A95 from Craggan Outdoors’ main site, but still sharing the same postcode. If you zoom in on the Google map, you will see Glenbeg to the west / left of Grantown-on-Spey, and northwest of the main Craggan Outdoors site. Owing to the opportunity for confusion / getting lost / knocking on our neighbours doors to get directions – which annoys them greatly & they give us grief – we generally arrange to ‘meet and greet’ guests and show them up to the accommodation, but also have directions available for people coming late and / or in multiple vehicles at different times. These arrangements will be made with the group organiser.
For Ardenbeg Bunkhouse, head into Grantown-on-Spey, and Ardenbeg is then easy to find on Grant Road, just one road back / west from the High Street. Easiest access is off the High Street via Chapel Road (the turning next to Lloyds Chemist) or Seafield Avenue (the turning beside the Co-op), & you’ll then find Ardenbeg situated between the turning for Coppice Court and Mackay Avenue. Full address is Ardenbeg, Grant Road, Grantown-on-Spey PH26 3LD.
If coming by car / minibus / motorbike, there is off-street parking for a number of vehicles – how many depends upon vehicle sizes and how others have already parked – in the grounds of Ardenbeg, and further on-street parking is available in Coppice Court, Mackay Avenue or Chapel Road. Please do not park immediately in front of Ardenbeg as this can block vehicle access to our neighbours’ properties across the road. Thanks!
