Carrbridge is a pretty town a short drive from Aviemore and is used as a base for Skiing in the winter and outdoor pursuits in the summer. The town derives its name from what is the oldest stone bridge in the wider highland region, Packhorse Bridge. The bridge was used by locals and adventurous tourists to leap into the river below.
Carrbridge is home of the Golden Spurtle Competition which is where the champion is crowned World Porridge Champion. If porridge making isnt your thing every September sees a chainsaw carving competition which is where competitors vie to carve pieces from logs with their machine saws. So there you have it, there are a few things going on in Carrbridge apart from skiing or plain old touring the highlands.
The town has a population of about 750 inhabitants and is served by Scottish Rail via Carrbridge Station. There is a local football side, Carrbridge FC and there is also a 9 hole golf course.
