Five Views of Boat of Garten, 1934

This postcard dates from 1934 and shows a variety of views around Boat of Garten. Boat of Garten is so called because there was once a chain-operated ferry that ran across the River Spey here. The ferry was replaced by a bridge in 1899.

The village of Boat of Garten developed after the opening of the railway in 1863. Loch Garten, which is home to an Osprey viewing centre, lies to the east of Boat of Garten.
