Candacraig is a haven for those who love going beyond the guidebooks and getting a taste of real adventure.
Your instinct to explore is rewarded on a 16,000-acre shared estate where bountiful nature and serene scenery are constant companions. Enjoy a private stretch of the River Don, with the tranquillity and privacy for wild swimming and exploration along its lush green banks.
For the adventure holiday experience in the Cairngorms National Park and beyond, the satisfying rumble of the engine will be music to your ears as you enjoy a 4x4 adventure into the hills. This place is equally stunning on two-wheels — and experiencing the much-loved trails, scenic routes and mountain passes on bikes (e-bikes available) is a must for anyone who loves the wind in their hair.
Whether it’s day or night, don’t forget to look up. Keen-eyed explorers can spot red squirrels roaming the treetops, birds of prey soaring overhead and wild deer along the hillsides, before settling in for an evening of world-class stargazing at Tomintoul & Glenlivet Dark Sky Park, which offers truly unique views of the cosmos that you won’t soon forget.
