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.

Very spacious and airy with lots of light and great views. Great location to everything! - the slopes and the Hilton for use of facilities for the kids, not far from the town and all that Aviemore has to offer. Thanks for all of the homely touches and for making our stay so fantastic! We will be back next year!!

The house had everything we required for a comfortable family stay. It was spotlessly clean and well presented. We were surprised how much bigger the house was inside than it looked from the outside. The entrance hall is very spacious and ample room for removing wet and dirty outdoor clothing. I would certainly recommend this house for a family gathering. All in all an enjoyable stay. Although we didn't actually meet the owners, but they were quick to respond to our enquiries by email.
