Aviemore Activity Centre - Where every moment is an adventure

Aviemore Activity Centre is a our brand new state-of-the-art space spanning over 1,500sqm which is being developed at Macdonald Aviemore Resort for Summer 2014 as part of a £600k investment.  The centre will combine the natural beauty of our Highland surroundings with the latest technology expected by our younger guests.  Dedicated to fun and adventure we have designed a supervised children's Activity centre.  Our aim is to introduce and foster children's interest in technology, whilst also ensuring that they learn to balance this with other play based activities, making full use of their natural environment and ensuring a well rounded view to development.




Resort and sister resort guests: £8 per session or £35 for 5 sessions.
Non-residents: £10 per session or £40 for 5 sessions.

Our leisure facilities (including Aviemore Activity Centre) are getting a makeover and so will be unavailable from Sunday 16th - Thursday 20th November.  Resort guests are welcome to use the facilities at Macdonald Spey Valley Golf & Country Club during this time.  Please contact the resort directly on 0844 879 9152 for more information.

13 years and over

Understanding that young people don't need the same level of supervision, teenagers have their own exclusive space. Chill is set slightly away from the main facility and where they have a zone of their own. Whilst this is CCTV monitored by the activity staff, the area is accessed by key card and young people over the age of 13 years do not need to be signed in and out. The teens also have set timings when they can make use of the Mix by booking in a session at reception.
