Insh Marshes - Cairngorms
Insh Marshes is an outstanding wetland of international importance covering 1000 hectares of the floodplain of the river Spey between Kingussie and Kincraig. From the great floodplain systems which once dominated the wide, often impassable valleys in Britain, Insh Marshes remains the last relatively natural example of its kind. Historically, flooding and grazing has played an important role in shaping the marshes, and this is still the case today. The site is internationally acclaimed and is particularly renowned for the number and variety of breeding waders, and the rich diversity of plants and animals.
