Activities in Aviemore

Holidaying at home has never been so tempting - and affordable. Especially as Macdonald Aviemore Resort launches its exclusive Summer Family Deal offering fun, action-packed and memorable staycations at one of three hotels or Woodland Lodges in Aviemore for just £19 for children and £51 for adults.

With the UK weather forecast promising a sunblock summer, the trend for staying closer to home shows no sign of abating. More than 35 percent of UK holidaymakers - an increase of 10 percent on last year - are now choosing to stay in the UK, with new figures released by Visit Scotland revealing that a third of all Scots will holiday at home this year.

From relaxing and rejuvenating vacations to golf breaks in Aviemore, to active adventure holidays exploring the breathtaking scenery of the Scottish Highlands, Macdonald Aviemore Resort - which lies in the heart of Aviemore and the spectacular Cairngorms National Park - has a summer holiday to suit all tastes and budgets, with endless attractions for every member of the family. There is a whole range of first class facilities such as the 3D Spey Valley Cinema, Spey Valley Championship Golf Course, inflatable fun factory, fishing facility, leisure arena and spa, with great service as standard.

Simply book to stay in one of three Aviemore hotels or Luxury Woodland Lodges before 14 July to receive these special rates, as well as enjoy a choice of extra holiday treats - such as free cinema tickets, two hours mountain bike hire, fishing tuition or nine-hole pitch and putt - per person, completely free of charge. Furthermore, every booking will receive one Indulgent Extra per room or lodge booked, such as spa voucher, late checkout or house wine upon arrival. As if that wasn't enough, kids up to the age of 12 eat for free every lunch time.

For guests who stay in the accommodation in Aviemore, Scottish breakfast and three course dinner in a restaurant of your choice is included, along with access to the Spey Valley Leisure Arena. Simply book before 14 July and stay before 30 September 2011.
