Aviemore Activity Centre is packed full of different activities to keep families thoroughly entertained and active during their stay to the resort with something for all ages. All our resort guests have free unlimited access throughout their stay with us.

Our activity rooms and soft play are open to non-residents too (see prices below). Our swimming pool is limited to resort guests only.

Miniature soft play for our smallest visitors to crawl, climb, slide, jump and clamber to their heart’s content. Babies will also discover an array of natural toys to stimulate their senses, and keep them fascinated

This area has its own tree house, sensory tray, and toys ranging from building blocks to train sets: everything a toddler needs to have a wonderful time.

Our largest room has a stage with all kinds of magical costumes and masks. Children love to rehearse and perform shows! Our storage units are full of arts and crafts, science kits, Lego, Transformers, magnets and all kinds of toys that our older children are free to access whenever they want; or perhaps they will choose games with their friends using some of our sports equipment.

Whether they want to relax with a DVD on the 60 inch television, or play the latest games on the X-box, this room tends to be a popular choice!


Our air hockey table is perfect for older children to play against each other or with an adult. Located in the main activity room.

Our sensory room is a beautiful space created to envelop the senses and provide respite from the rest of the world. A lot of parents are also keen to stay here!

Our three storey soft play area has multiple climbing areas, tunnels, slides and much more for children to enjoy. This area can be used free of charge by resort guests and non residents can buy a day pass for £4 per child. The soft play is located next to Costa Coffee in Aviemore Activity Centre.
