This range has been dived into three sections: Cairngorms North and South, plus Feshie. I`ve also incorporated the Aberdeenshire hills which lie to the north east.
If you`re in the Aviemore area it`s worth checking out the Sheepdog display at Leault Farm, Kincraig where head shepherd Neil Ross puts the dogs, all Border Collies, through their paces. It`s very entertaining to watch these animals at work, especially in such a magnificent setting with the Cairngorm Mountains as a backdrop. (to edit)* The adult dog demo ends with up to twelve collies in a row facing the flock of ewes that they`ve just rounded-up.
Next it`s the younger dogs who begin by herding ducks round an obstacle course and into a small pen. Once the sheepdog demonstrations are over it`s usually time for lamb-feeding and introducing the visitors to any newly arrived Border Collie pups. Further information including demonstration times can be found at: www.leaultworkingsheepdogs.co.uk.
Another extremely popular attraction in the region is the Strathspey Steam Railway which enables visitors to take a step back in time and see magnificent scenery including the western aspect of the Cairngorms in comfort. etc*
