The Cassidys are keen outdoor enthusiasts and enjoy skiing, mountain biking, hiking, nature and all the amazing natural local offerings that the Cairngorms National Park has to offer.

In a delightful rural location overlooking Loch Alvie, which is only a short walk away, the hotel is a great base for exploring the surrounding area and the popular destination of Aviemore is a 3 mile drive north, in the heart of the scenically stunning Cairngorms National Park.


HILLTREK OUTDOOR CLOTHING is sponsoring a prize TBC for the Scottish Nature Photographer of the Year 2022.

Hilltrek Outdoor Clothing is a small team who design and make outdoor clothes for use in the mountains, the glens, the woodlands and on the riverbanks. The Cairngorms National Park is our testing ground....and our playground too. We share a passion for the outdoors, whatever our particular sport. We work closely with outdoor professionals - to hear their stories, share their experiences of using outdoor clothing in all weathers. We believe in listening and creating; adapting our designs and developing new garments to meet the challenges our customers face of living, working and playing in outdoor environments all year round.

Our story started over 35 years ago when our unique garments quickly spread to the outdoor community in the north-east of Scotland. Today with our expertise in Ventile Cotton Clothing and customisable products, we export to over 30 countries around the world. Our products are designed and manufactured in our workshop in Aboyne in Deeside on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park and are used from the polar regions to high mountains.
