Nethy Station, converted to a hostel, is centrally situated within the Cairngorms National Park, between Aviemore and the Speyside Whisky Trail. Perfect for exploring the many activities available on mountain, river, land & sea. You'll always have Exclusive Use and it was set up specifically for groups of 12-26. We have coded locks to allow for entry by any member of the group. Enough showers and toilets for all and extra basins.
Dogs are welcome and so are Stags and Hens!

We can help but as we only deal with pre-booked large groups it has never been requested.
It is rough ground and near the entrance is slabbed. The accessible parking is at the side of the property, opposite the normal car park.
Path to main entrance
This is a hostel for pre-booked groups. Therefore they will always be with friends who should be able to assist them. We do not advertise it as suitable for disabled but there are many who are able to use the facilities with help from the rest of the group.
Getting around inside
These are triple bunk rooms so unsuitable for severely disabled guests. There would need to be able to walk a few steps to be bale to get around.
Self catering kitchen
Abernethy Bunkhouse - Nethy Station Kitchen
The kitchen would be difficult for anyone with mobility problems. It is narrow and quite cramped especially because the minimum group size is 12, much of the preparation needs doing in the dining room. The dining room has tables with benches though chairs may be put at the end of each table.
This was simply the Waiting Room for the old station. It is narrow with chairs and a bar set up.
Getting around outside
This is the old railway platform and therefore is open with a big drop down to the car park. There is an area that is covered with tables with integral benches.
Customer care support
It could be charged on the platform with a cable through the door
Customer care support
We do not have anyone on site. This is a self-catering hostel and so the Group Leader is responsible for the well-being of the group.
