Things to do

-Winter sports: Skiing is a popular activity in the Cairngorms from December to April each year. There is a skiing area just 9 miles from Aviemore, which offers 30 km of ski runs serviced by 11 ski lifts. There are a variety of runs to suit everyone from beginners to advanced skiers, and on-site equipment rental and lessons are available to those who require them. Outside of the ski season, the Cairngorms provide excellent walking, hiking, and mountain biking. Guided tours are available throughout the year.

-Historical attractions: Balmoral Castle is a bit of a drive from Aviemore holiday cottages, but well worth the trip. The castle is the Scottish holiday home of the royal family, who generally visit from August to October each year. The grounds and gardens are open to visitors in the winter, late spring, and summer. The castle is situated on the banks of the River Dee and beyond its manicured gardens is surrounded by beautiful and rugged landscapes.

-Cultural attractions: The Malt Whisky Trail is completely unique to Scotland and features some of the nation’s most famous distilleries. Those staying in a Aviemore holiday home are less than an hour’s drive from the popular route. Glenlivet, the first licensed distillery in the Scottish Highlands, is the closest distillery to Aviemore. From there, it’s an easy drive to the ever-popular Glenfiddich distillery and the eye-opening Dallas Dhu Historic Distillery. The Whisky Trail provides some insight into one of Scotland’s most famous exports and is a must for any fan of single malt whisky.

-Sightseeing: The Cairngorm Mountain Railway begins just a few miles outside of Aviemore and scales the Cairngorms. Stretching over a mile, it was opened in 2001 and is the UK’s only funicular railway. It is not only the easiest and most convenient way to ascend the mountain, but also offer fabulous views of the surrounding national park.

-Natural attractions: Loch an Eilen was recently voted the top picnic spot in Britain and has won praise from tourism experts and naturalists alike. Located in scenic Rothiemurchus, it is a 30-minute walk from holiday cottages in Aviemore and is not to be missed. Loch an Eilen is most famous for its romantic island castle, which appears to float in the water. Along with picnicking, visitors can partake in any number of activities including mountain biking, pony riding, wildlife watching, and wildlife photography.

Wonderful Family Christmas

5 of 5
The house is immaculate, very clean and comfortable with good quality bedding and towels, very spacious but also cosy and many nights were enjoyed in front of the log fire. The kitchen is an ideal space for the family to get together for meals around the large table. An ideal location, nice and quiet but within easy reach of all amenities. Lovely outdoor space even in winter, also with many very good restaurants within an easy distance. We would recommend Macdui's, The Old Bridge Inn, The Winking Owl, La Taverna and of course The Cairngorm Hotel, all offer a very friendly and family orientated service. The parade on Christmas Eve in Aviemore was magical and very well organised. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely house to family and friends, where the owners are also incredibly helpful.

Excellent location for exploring and quality accommodation.

5 of 5
We were in Aviemore with our children for a few days skiing and exploration of the surrounding area. The holiday park was quiet and peaceful and a great location by the river, the ducks were well fed during our stay! It was clean and well kept with a bar on site which had a welcoming fire. My husband was able to watch the rugby and there were plenty of board games and a pool table to keep the children occupied. It was easy walking distance into town and to local pubs and restaurants. The caravan had everything we needed, it was really warm and immaculately kept. There was a good selection of DVD’s to keep us entertained when the snow was heavy. We would definitely stay again. Thank you for a great stay!
