Laggan, Badenoch

Laggan is a village in Badenoch, in the Highland region of Scotland. It is beside the River Spey, about 10 km west of Newtonmore. The A86 road passes through the village and crosses the river on a nearby bridge.

It featured as the fictional village of Glenbogle in the BBC TV drama series "Monarch of the Glen".

Laggan is in the Cairngorms National Park.

Ruins of a Pictish fort can be found near Strathmashie, Laggan.

The Laggan Wolftrax, a mountain biking centre located in the nearby Strathmashie Forest, opened in 2004. This facility, owned by the Forestry Commission, features over 17 km of purpose-built trails.
