Natural Burial Ground
Delliefure Natural Burial Ground
Delliefure lies within the beautiful Cairngorms National Park, overlooking the March Pool on a bend in the River Spey, famous for its salmon and sea-trout fishing.
The wildlife here is world class; Osprey fly and screech overhead, while salmon, sea-trout and otters swim the river; deer blend into the woodland where pine martin and red squirrel inhabit the ancient pines. Lichens thrive in the clean air and coat trees and rocks with a huge diversity of forms, which in turn provide a food source for specialised foraging animals throughout the long winter months. This place really is very special.
The open glade at Delliefure sweeps a gentle curve, bordered by a bank of birch woodland. At the eastern end, the vista opens out to reveal magnificent river views and a sense of space.
