Visitor activities

There are lots of things to do and enjoy on the land we manage, from countryside walks, to mountain biking, to visiting to the most northerly Dark Sky park in the UK. 

Glenlivet Estate, Moray 

The Glenlivet Estate lies at the Cairngorms National Park and our visitor information centre and ranger service is based in the historic village of Tomintoul.

The hills, burns and rivers, glens and woodlands are home to a wide range of habitats and wildlife and the stunning landscapes change with the seasons. There are visitor attractions, from distilleries to castles and mountain bike trails, waiting to be explored and a range of activities, with something for everyone.

You can read about the range of waymarked trails and download our Glenlivet Estate map, or find us on Facebook and Instagram
