Strathdon lies in Upper Donside in the Cairngorms National Park. Strathdon is an area rich in scenic beauty and places of interest with marvellous opportunities to observe wildlife. There are small communities scattered throughout Strathdon, the largest of these being Bellabeg. Every year on the fourth Saturday of August the Clansmen of the Lonach Highlanders march through Strathdon to Bellabeg Park for the Lonach Gathering, a unique and friendly Highland Games.
Strathdon is steeped in history; visitors can discover stories of the past at Corgarff and Glenbuchat Castles and explore the Doune of Invernochty. Nearby the Lecht Centre offers activities year round, including skiing and snowboarding in Winter and mountain biking in the summer.
