How to Get Here
BEWARE! Beware, Lazy Duck post code will lead you astray so better to use ‘self-nav’ or Google Maps have us pinned correctly.
From the A9 or the Moray Coast
Come to the centre of the village and find the Nethy Bridge Hotel. Follow the Lazy Duck sign in the pub garden, pointing straight up the road to the village boundary, following one signpost to Tomintoul.
Take the road to Grantown-on-Spey and turn off to Nethy Bridge (4 miles). After passing Catle Roy, cross the hump back bridge and turn first left to follow a minor road until you see the Lazy Duck entrance on the left just before you enter the village.
Aviemore Car & Van Hire
Johnny’s Private Hire: 01479 851375
Coming from the A9, what about stopping at Loch Garten for 10mins before you arrive? It’s clearly signposted on the road from Boat of Garten and well worth a short detour if you have time.
Nearest airport is Inverness (30miles) with car hire available.
Direct from London Gatwick, London Luton and Bristol
Flies to Glasgow Prestwick from across Europe followed by a bargain scenic four hour train ride to Aviemore. Present your air ticket or email printout and buy your ticket on the train for a half price single journey to anywhere in Scotland. Just remember you have to change stations in Glasgow (Central to Queen Street is a five minute walk).
Come by train via Scotrail to Aviemore from Inverness, or from Perth with connections from Edinburgh & Glasgow. You can take an Overnight Caledonian Sleeper direct from London to Aviemore with a bargain berth from £14-£49 (booking up to 12 weeks ahead).
From Aviemore, why not use our very own Strathspey Steam Railway for the last 10 miles of your journey via Boat of Garten to Broomhill Station (Glenbogle of Monarch of the Glen TV series) and walk or cycle the last 2 miles? [Train Times]
Good value to Aviemore is by coach with National Express from London and other centres in England and across Europe. Use Scottish Citylink from Inverness, Glasgow, Edinburgh and other places in Scotland.
Getting to Nethy Bridge from Aviemore or Inverness, you can use the 37 bus service [view timetable] and ask for the Causar Shelter stop. Find the signpost to Tomintoul and follow the road (5 mins) to the Lazy Duck entrance track in the forest at the end of the village. If the weather is dreich and you have heavy bags, don’t be shy in calling us to ask for a lift on the final jaunt!
