Bridge over the River Feshie, Feshiebridge

About 5 miles south of Aviemore is Feshiebridge, an 18th-century stone bridge spanning the River Feshie. There are a couple of short walks from a carpark near the bridge and just downstream from the bridge is a wonderful wild swimming spot.

Here’s the wild swimming spot. It looks about 1-1.5m deep at its deepest point although we didn’t go in.

Down the road from Freshiebridge is Loch Insh, a large freshwater loch, popular for outdoor water sports. We stopped here for lunch as there’s a restaurant overlooking the loch called The Boathouse. The food was very nice but we were a bit overwhelmed by how busy the place was, although not the loch itself as you can see from the photos. But the carpark felt like King’s Cross Station at rush hour.

We decided to find cake in the nearby village of Kincraig and I’m glad we did because here we found a gem of a place: Old Post Office Café and Gallery. This was a lovely little spot with a wonderful atmosphere, a nice outdoor seating area, original artwork to admire, and delicious vegan cake.

My cake: chocolate orange.

  1. That cake looks amazing! So are there any plans to go back to the swimming spot (perhaps on a warmer day! lol)
