    Nethy Bridge and the Abernethy Forest. The village of Nethy Bridge is often affectionately referred to simply as Nethy and has been a holiday destination since Victorian times, yet the area remains unspoiled with the majority of accommodation hidden away in quiet locations next to the ancient Caledonian pine forest. Nethy has had a long and close relationship with the Abernethy Forest and as a result, this has taken on the mantle of The Forest Village.
