Boat of Garten is an all year round tourist destination offering holiday accommodation and activities and provides a good place to start exploring the surrounding area.

 The Boat of Garten lies between Grantown- Spey and Avimore, a peaceful Highland village set amongst heather clad hills and native woodland, adjacent to the River Spey, in the Cairngorm National Park.

This is an area of outstanding natural beauty, and the perfect place from which to explore the Highlands or simply unwind. The massive Abernethy nature reserve can be found here, this is a remaining remnant of the great Forest of Caledon the home to a good number of rare and unique species of bird and mammal, not least the pine marten and Capercaillie. The area is less frequented and offers the traveller a hidden and dramatic view deep into the heart of the Cairngorms.

The golf course has been described as a miniature Glen- Eagles, established in 1898 Boat of Garten Golf Club is a beautiful 18-hole heathland golf course set alongside the River Spey in the heart of the magnificent Cairngorms National Park.It has championship golf courses like Castle Stuart, Royal Dornoch and Nairn a few miles to the North, Boat of Garten is the ideal introduction to Highland golf.

There are two well-maintained Tennis Courts available for those members and visitors looking for an alternative to golf and, and the RSPB osprey hide at Loch Garten and the Strathspey

The railway operates a 10 mile preserved railway from Aviemore to Broomhill via Boat of Garten, featuring original buildings, dating from 1904, the station also has the railway's only water column where the locomotives stop to take water on their way north through the station. Locomotives are normally coaled during the morning, on the south side of the station. There are two signal boxes, Boat of Garten North and Boat of Garten South and signalling uses traditional British Railways mechanical semaphore signalling. It is the crossing point on the line when there are two trains running. Great place for the train enthusiast.
