The Old Log Shed is situated in the Spey Valley in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, in the Scottish Highlands and only a short distance from Kingussie and Aviemore. The well appointed timber chalet, which has recently been refurbished, adjoins our family home.   The chalet has a south facing aspect with patio doors from the main room on to an outdoor living area with a backdrop of natural forest stretching into Glenfeshie and the Cairngorms mountains. The Insh Marshes, a popular spot for birdwatching, is accessible from Insh village. Squirrels, badgers, deer and pinemarten make regular visits to the garden and can be watched from the comfort of the patio window!

The Old Log Shed is an ideal centre for daily excursions in the Highlands and a list of suggested walks and car trips is provided.
