Strathspey is the valley of the River Spey with its source in the central highlands. It passes the Cairngorm Mountains, the main centre for Scottish winter sports and on to the famous whisky distilling area. Lodge of Finlarig is in the Cairngorms National Park.

Dulnain Bridge village is close to the A95 Aviemore to Keith road and within the Cairngorms National Park. It is comprised of two communities, Dulnain Bridge itself and the crofting community of Skye-of-Curr which stretches for about a mile to the south, terminating at the Speyside Heather Centre.

The surrounding forests of mature Caledonian Pines contain many rare and interesting species. The bird list is headed by the endangered Capercaillie which are regularly seen. There are Scottish Crossbills, the small but beautiful Crested Tit, Buzzards, Eagles, and of course Ospreys. The Red Squirrel is very much at home here!

Curr Wood, on the south and east of the village has the country's largest population of Twinflower, known by the botanical name of linnea borealis. They share the forest floor with a tiny orchid called Creeping Ladies Tresses.

The north end of Dulnain Bridge has a good display of a type of glaciated rock called 'Roches Moutonnes', and there are Pictish carved stones. Two Stone Age coffins were found in the 1880's in a burial cairn in Curr Wood.
