The lodges are in a superb
location enabling you to go on fantastic walks right from
the moment you cross your own doorstep! There are forest trails, lochside paths or more challenging
walks for those feeling adventurous.
When the weather is warm and you can eat 'al fresco',
as each Lodge has a patio, picnic table and BBQ and although
charcoal can be purchased from various outlets in Aviemore, a
lot of fun can be had from gathering fallen wood from the
surrounding forest for BBQ use.
Ample parking is located adjacent to each Lodge,
with additional parking nearby.
Covered Sports Hall: A large, floodlit area
laid with special soft flooring, complete with 5-a-side
nets, basketball posts and floodlights operated through £1 tokens (available

BBQ Hut: Overlooking the pond and stream this open fronted, rustic stone hut has a log fire, a large BBQ and basic picnic seating. Can be used by all or booked for exclusive use by larger groups free of charge.
The Hall: A larger dining/meeting room which seats approximately 80-100 in rows theatre style or approx 80 for dining purposes - it has its own fully equipped, self catering kitchen.

Badaguish is an ideal place to experience some
new activities or improve existing skills with the help of our local Activity Providers. Whether on holiday, on a day visit, organising a teambuilding event, staying on-site
in our luxury lodges, wigwams or camping, or living locally ...... there's lots for you to do. To find out more and see the wide range of activities available - click here.
There are excellent mountain biking tracks
through wonderful scenery leading right out from the Badaguish
site and for those wanting a bit more power, quad biking is available
locally - just ask for more details.
Please note: Although the Lodges are located in a secluded
location at the edge of the Badaguish clearing, you should
be aware that other groups, which may include
college groups or guides/boy scouts etc, may be using the campsite while you are on-site.
Badaguish exists to help people with disabilities
develop new skills and enjoy the outdoors and is affiliated
to Adventure for All. There is a separate lodge (situated
on the far side of the extensive site) that provides activity
holidays for people with physical and learning disabilities so if you would like to learn more about the Badaguish Holiday Care Programme click
