A more perfect location than Aviemore, for a holiday or weekend break, does not exist. Ideally situated within the Cairngorm National Park, Aviemore sits on the doorstep of an area packed with fun and exciting things to do and see, the Rothiemurchus estate. With water sports at nearby Loch Morlich, sailing at Loch Insh, skiing up the Cairngorms and hiking through the Glenmore Forest Park, you’ll never be left wandering what to do next.
Aviemore is not a difficult place to get to either. While Inverness Airport is half an hour away by road by the main A9 carriageway, Aviemore has its own railway station too (offering as well as the mainline services its special Strathspey steam locomotive train rides).
Accommodation in Aviemore is available in plentiful supply. Whatever your budget, Aviemore has something for everybody. Choose between the giant holiday complexes of the Macdonald Hotels, the Dalfaber Hotel and Spa, as well as the more traditional Scottish Highland hotel experience available at the Cairngorm Hotel. Self catering accommodation can be found at the Speyside chalet park as well as designer apartments with stunning CairnGorm views at the Lochan Mhor development. Hostels are situated next to the Old Bridge Inn by the Spey at the Bunkhouse the SYH in Grampian Road.
