You can get to Aviemore by car in half an hour or less, and it will deal with most of your shopping needs (provisions and especially outdoor gear). The superb Old Bridge Inn there is recommended for food and drink, and provides a good base before a quick and scenic drive to Loch Morlich and Cairn Gorm (for latter the funicular takes you very close to the summit), both beautiful in their different ways. We found that a fairly quick drive through the pleasant rolling countryside, past Dallas and Elgin, takes one easily to the spectacular castle outside Duffus (free entrance), from which it is not too far a drive to Burgh Head, for spectacular views of the sea and the firth. We lunched at the excellent Duffus Inn.
