Arriving By Car

From the A9 or the Moray Coast

Come to the centre of the village and find the Nethy Bridge Hotel. Follow the Lazy Duck sign in the pub garden, pointing straight up the road to the village boundary, following one signpost to Tomintoul.

From Deeside

Take the road to Grantown-on-Spey and turn off to Nethy Bridge (4 miles). Follow a minor road until you see the Lazy Duck entrance on the left just before you enter the village.

Sat-Nav

BEWARE! Beware, Lazy Duck post code will lead you astray so better to use ‘self-nav’ around Nethy Bridge.

Tip

Coming from the A9, what about stopping at Loch Garten for 10mins before you arrive? It’s clearly signposted on the road from Boat of Garten and well worth a short detour if you have time.
