The Auchavan Estate, situated to the south of the Cairngorms National Park is perfectly situated for a wide range of activities and sights of interest.

Auchavan Estate provides a breathtaking setting for four beautifully appointed cottages in the Cairngorms National Park, near Glenisla.

We welcome shooting parties and those interested in stalking and can arrange this for you.
