With lighter nights and warmer temperatures; Spring is a great time to explore the Cairngorms with all the activities and attractions in and around Aviemore. We've hand picked the top 20 things to do on our resort and nearby. Check them out below.

1. Visit the Green Loch

It's named the Green Loch for the obvious reason of the water in the loch being green. No-one seems to know the reason for this, but it is possible that the colour comes from the trees along the loch floor. It really is worth a visit.
