Leisure breaks in Cairngorms National Park
The neighbouring Highland town of Aviemore is probably best known as a skiing resort. A year-round highland resort on the Spey, it was opened in 1966 in the heart of the Highlands, at the foot of the historic rock of Craigellachie.
Many feel that Aviemore should be developed as the tourism 'epi-centre' of the highlands. It has a powerful infrastructure, has some shops, a dry ski slope - and is again about to undergo some very radical and innovative tourism and leisure development. Recent facelifts have given it a much more appealing, modern feel and things are now really starting to happen here.
Visitors flock here for its accessibility to some of the most beautiful scenery in the Highlands, especially the Cairngorm Mountains, known for good skiing in winter and excellent hiking and climbing in summer. The development of the Cairngorm ski area and the area’s recent National Park status has given the town and area a huge boost and the rather special funicular railway is a journey not to be missed, as is a nostalgic trip on the delightful little Strathspey Steam Railway.
Our weekend leisure breaks are very popular indeed. ‘Short haul’ breaks and time snacks are becoming a feature of our time pressured world and many of our guests come to share time with us and get away from it all for a while from as near at hand as Inverness and Aberdeen. Where you can leave the hurly burly at 5 and be comfortably enjoying a pre-dinner aperitif by 7. Once you arrive here you will really feel the weekend beginning.
From time to time we offer great weekend deals although availability is usually very limited. Keep an eye on our special offers pages too for further details of great leisure and romantic breaks and escapes.
Especially for those of us who are not so time-pressured, the quieter weekdays offer a superb opportunity to explore and enjoy this wonderful area without the buzz of the weekend. When nothing is a rush and you can take your time each day after a leisurely breakfast to do all the relaxing you’ve promised yourself.
Our ‘midweek madness’ offers allow you to melt your time away at your leisure, at prices you’ll love. No deadlines to meet, just peace and quiet at a budget you can afford, no matter the time of year.
