The TV series ‘Monarch of the Glen’ has shown just what a beautiful part of Scotland this is. Many of the scenes are filmed in the area around us. The area's diversity of landscape and magnificent scenery ranges from the high plateau of the Cairngorms at over four thousand feet in height on the one side, to the wild and remote Monadhliath mountains on the other and along the great sweep of the line of the River Spey through moorland and forest in the south to wider agricultural landscapes in the north east.
The landscapes which add so much to the stunning visual experience of Monarch of the Glen can be experienced by anyone who cares to visit the area - and you never know - you might even bump into one of the stars, or drive round a corner and find a film crew in full swing - experiences which many of us here in Badenoch have encountered.
