The Guardian newspaper named the 37 bus service between Aviemore and Grantown-on-Spey as one of the most scenic in the UK.

The publication said: "This 45-minute bus ride from Aviemore railway station through the Cairngorms offers mountains views, evergreen forests and village cafes.

"There are Highland cattle grazing around the ruined walls of Castle Roy and even the odd red squirrel darting through roadside treetops.

"It’s a useful bus route for linear hikes along the Speyside Way with a stop at the Osprey Centre Road End for a birdsong-filled walk through the woods around Loch Garten and the chance to spot crested tits among ancient Caledonian pine trees."

The paper added: "Grantown-on-Spey has plenty of places to warm up, including the little museum and nearby Garth hotel (doubles from about £105 B&B).

"Buses run hourly Mondays to Saturdays, four a day on Sundays; return tickets £6.50.
