About the neighbourhood
Aviemore and the Cairngorms are simply brilliant for family & outdoor holidays and short breaks, but there is also plenty to offer those who prefer to relax! Activities nearby include hill walking (from easy strolls for all to full-on mountaineering), skiing, mountain biking, watersports, horse riding & pony trekking, golf, fishing, stalking, quad biking and much more. For those who wish to take things a bit slower, there are many lovely woodland and loch side walks, with the beach at Loch Morlich being a family favourite. Day trips nearby include the Highland Wildlife Park, Landmark Forest Adventure Park, the Cairngorm Brewery and local distilleries.The Strathspey Steam Railway is a also a must.
Getting around
To get the most out of your visit to Aviemore and the Cairngorm National Park we would recommend a car due to the flexibility it gives you. However, the train station is only a five minute walk from the house and plenty of buses service the area.
