About Lazy Duck

Suitable For

Each of our accommodation has its own unique charm – if you have trouble choosing then let us know and we can help you decide. One of our favourite spots on our six acres has to be our welcoming bench at the duck pond. It's such a lovely thing to sit and watch the goings on on the pond, noticing the quirky interactions between species.


We are proud to be located in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, an area of immense diversity and beauty in landscape and wildlife. When not chilling out back at the Duck, guests can choose from exploring the high peaks of the Cairngorm Plateau, the ancient Caledonian forest or join the Speyside Way, the long-distance trail which follows the famous River Spey. Not to mention fishing, whisky distillery visits, reindeer trekking, zip lining, folk museum-ing and many more interesting attractions, as sedate or exhilarating as required.

Food & Drink

Ooh, we have a few favourite places to eat and drink around here. The Nethy House Cafe (07963 217 793) in the village is great for hot soup and cake, and the Mountview Hotel (01479 821 248) has great service and delicious dinners. Both are within walking distance. In nearby Boat of Garten we love Anderson's Restaurant (01479 831 466) for its lovely atmosphere and amazing flavours (not forgetting the interesting ice cream flavours!). And in Grantown on Spey we are lucky to have High Street Merchants (01479 872246), an effortlessly elegant, modern coffee shop.

Family Friendly

Breathe, unwind, relax. This is the perfect place to introduce your kids to the pleasures of laziness.

Getting There

The Lazy Duck is on the Nethy Bridge–Tomintoul road, in the forest at the edge of the village – beside the Fhuarain burn andwaterfowl ponds in a forest clearing homestead, looking south to the ‘northern corries’ of the Cairngorms in the heart of the National Park. From the centre of the village, find the Nethy Bridge Hotel and follow the Lazy Duck sign in the pub garden, pointing straight up the road to the village boundary.

Stagecoach Highlands (01463 233 371) run services to Nethy Bridge from Aviemore and Grantown-on-Spey.
