The Scottish Highlands region
Aviemore is one of the largest towns within the Cairngorm National Park. There is something for everyone whether you are looking for exhilarating adventure holiday or relaxing break.
Nestling in the shadow of the Cairngorm Mountains and gateway to the National Park, this renowned all year round holiday resort offers a unique variety of attractions and activities such as walking in the surrounding hills, cycling and making use of the nearby golf courses. There is also bird watching, with rare species to be found including Ospreys and Capercaillie. The area is home to historic castles, distilleries, fishing on the River Spey and skiing in the Cairngorm mountains and at the Lecht ski centre.
The Cairngorm area is the ideal place for outdoor activities. Apart from the mountains themselves, there's also the Glenmore Forest Park to explore, watersports on Loch Morlich and Loch Insh, plus fishing, skiing, cycling and golf. Aviemore provides the perfect place to base an outdoor holiday providing snowboarding to kayaking, quad biking to clay pigeon shooting and a range of unbelievably beautiful walks almost everywhere you go.
The Cairngorm Ranger Service operates a programme of walks starting from the Ranger Base (located in the Mountain Railway Base Station) at Coire Cas. To check current details contact Ranger Base 01479 861703.
The Rothiemurchus Estate welcomes visitors with something for everyone, including a fish farm, guided walks, safari tours, clay pigeon shooting and lots more. Naturally, walking is very popular, with walks of all grades, notably at lower level in the Rothiemurchus pinewoods.
For that rainy day, the Leisure centre at Macdonald Highland Resort has a swimming pool with wave machine and flume. It also hosts a techno gym and games room and has beauty/therapy treatments for that holiday treat. There is also the Strathspey Steam Railway which is operated by volunteers and runs throughout holiday periods. The train starts in Aviemore and runs to Broomhill stopping at Boat of Garten.
