“Aviemore”

published 11/05/2017

ProA Great Place to Visit

ConsCannot Think of Any

AVIEMORE Aviemore is a hidden gem situated in the north of Scotland. I say hidden, because it is so far north that many people don't realise it is here, and also because of the size of it - it is a small town so the implications are that there won't be much to do. In actual fact, there are lots...

ConsSnow not always available

“You’re not going are you?” asked my incredulous daughter. “Have you told him?” queried my disbelieving Dad. “Are you mad?” demanded my down to earth Mother. I was three months into a ‘weekend only’ romance with new man. He lived in London and...

ConsNone unless it rains!

The Landmark Forest Heritage Park, on the B9153 near Aviemore, has to be one of the best attractions for the whole family in Scotland. As you’re probably used to reading by now in my ciao opinions, there is no specific category for it, so I have had to put in under 'Aviemore Area' –...

ProBeautiful scenery, sports, lots to see nearby

“Around Aviemore”

published 09/12/2000

ProSomething for everyone.

ConsI don't think there are any

Aviemore itself is very much geared towards skiers (no complaint with that), but the surrounding area has a great deat to offer. The Rothiemurchus Estate offers low and high level walks, and estate and farm tours. I'd particularly recommed a visit to Loch an Eiliein, with its ruined castle in the...

I have visited Aviemore and the surrounding area many times and never tire of going back. For a start the journey there is so beautiful, I live in the South West of Scotland and travel by car. Travelling through the Perthshire countryside I know my holidays have begun. The scenery you pass is...

Aviemore is a place best known for its ski resort and the Cairngorn mountains about 40 minutes drive away. The busiest season is obviously in winter where the skiers pack the place. But in the off-season, one can go there to ski as well. I have gone there a couple of times with friends, and on...
