Dulnain Bridge is a small village in the Scottish Highlands situated in the heart of Strathspey. It is centred around the high 18th century bridge over the River Dulnain in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. The village comprises two communities, Dulnain Bridge to the north of the bridge and Skye-of-Curr stretches for a mile to the south. This is a popular area for visitors with the surrounding mountainous scenery and many attractions. There are several golf courses in the area, including the Boat of Garten course, which has been rated as the 39th best in Britain. Dulnain Bridge is the current terminus of the famous Strathspey Railway, a steam train that runs to Broomhill (Dulnain Bridge) through part of the Highlands from Aviemore. At the north end of the village sit an impressive display of glaciated rocks called roche moutonees. The surrounding forests of Caledonian pines contain many rare species, including birds such as the endangered capercaille and the main population of Twinflower is found in Curr Wood. There are also Scottish crossbills, crested tits, buzzards, golden eagles and ospreys to be seen. You will also see red squirrels reside in the woods. For historians, there are Pictish carved stones nearby and two Stone Age coffins were found in the 1880s in a burial cairn in Curr Wood.
