About the Owner

Ptarmigan Lodge is family owned by myself and my wife. We have a young family and enjoy all the outdoor activity that takes place around the Spey Valley and Nethy Bridge. We love skiing, mountain biking, trail running and hill walking.

From the Owner

We feel Nethy Bridge is a real jewel of the Spey Valley and has a indelible link with the forest, rivers and nature that surrounds it. Nethy Bridge and Ptarmigan Lodge are a real easy-living place. Walking by the river down to the local shop for the paper on a Sunday morning is one of my favourite walks. It's our favourite place to spend time relaxing in winter or summer.
