Things to do around Aviemore

Located within the Cairngorms National Park this resort is only 20 minutes from the tourist centre of Aviemore, the UK‘s largest winter sports area, and only thirty minutes from the Highland capital Inverness and the stunning Moray Firth Coast. This stretch of coast is not only popular for its beaches but a well known location for spotting dolphins and viewing the Northern Lights.


Nearby attractions include the Cairn Gorm mountain, and Landmark Forest Adventure Park which is less than a 5 minute drive from the resort and features thrilling rides and fun activities for kids of all ages (big and small!). Other attractions include the beautiful Loch Morlich with its famous sandy beaches, Strathspey Steam Railway, Rothiemurchus Estate, Highland Wildlife Park and the Highland Folk Museum. For whisky lovers there's a number of fabulous local distilleries to visit (and sample!), take a look at the famous Malt Whisky Trail that starts near here.
