Ride the Highlands

Horse Riding In The Cairngorms

The Cairngorms has long had a reputation for being one of the most breath-taking mountain ranges in Scotland. Alongside their fellow Braemar counterparts, Angus Glens, Strathspey and Monadhliath, the region is regarded to be one of the most beautiful in the country and indeed, the United Kingdom.

This outstanding natural beauty inevitably attracts all manner of explorers; from ramblers and hikers to mountain bikers or simply those looking to take in the incredible Scottish Highland views and untouched nature reserves.


Try Horse Riding Through The Cairngorms National Park 

A fantastic way to explore the Cairngorms National Park is horse riding in Aberdeenshire, offering an entirely different way to take in one of Scotland’s most beautiful and unique regions.    

A perfect activity for families with young children who have never tried riding a horse or pony before. The skilled tutors ensure your day is safe and relaxing, allowing you the opportunity to embrace what is such an enjoyable activity; with the backdrop of this stunning National Park. 

Pony trekking is even thought to have emanated initially from this part of the Highlands, carrying deer off the hill, the diligent ponies would work alongside stalkers. 


Historic Trails with an Unforgettable Backdrop 

Navigating historic trails that have been used for centuries, originally for cattle droving in the highlands; horse riding in the Cairngorms is surely the ultimate escapism. You are able to relish in secret parts of the Scottish Highlands that few have ever experienced and all under the supervision of qualified experts. Open all year round, horse riding and pony trekking in the Cairngorms is the ideal activity for your trip to the Highlands and one that you and the family will cherish forever.

As mentioned, there are many certified horse-riding centres in the Cairngorms area, all of which give you great peace of mind in terms of safety and also ensure you get the very most out of your experience. One such horse-riding centre we recommend is Glen Tanar and we can, of course, help you with your booking should you decide to spend some time with us at The Fife Arms. They are just 45 minutes from the hotel, and you can discover more by heading to their website.
