Looking for something a bit different to enjoy on your holiday in the Cairngorm National Park?
Come along to Carrbridge and enjoy one of our Picnic Drives!
Your and your guest(s) would be picked you up from the car-park in Carrbridge Village by myself and Holly our carriage horse. You can have the choice of our romantic "Wedding" carriage for 2 people or our new "Access for All " covered carriage which can have it's hood on/off or rolled up - depending on the weather. It can take a maximum of 5 people (1 person in a wheelchair + up to 2 adults or 4 adults, or 2 adults and 3 children, or 1 adult and 4 children. We would then transport you through the village, past the historic 1717 Pack-horse Bridge, then on out into the stunning scenery of the Highlands. The drive is approximately 8 miles in total, with a half-way halt for your picnic and the drive lasts for around 3 hours.
On arriving at the picnic spot you can disembark from the carriage and take a stroll along the banks of the River Dulnain. On your return to the carriage you can enjoy your picnic in tranquillity, as Holly and I go for a stroll so she can have a drink from the river and a bite of grass. On our return, we pack up and enjoy the relaxing return journey back to the village – no falling asleep now!!
