Site description (2007 baseline)
The Insh marshes form the largest single-unit flood-plain mire of the poor-fen type in Britain. They are also the most northerly, the site lying within the flat valley floor of the River Spey between Kincraig and Kingussie. The IBA supports diverse breeding and wintering bird communities.
