Destination guide

Exploring Aviemore holiday cottages

Aviemore, cradled deep in the green and rugged fells of the Cairngorms National Park, is now the main hub of this wonderful Scottish reserve. Hiking trails and adrenaline-pumping mountain bike routes start right on the doorstep of most Aviemore holiday lettings, while outdoorsy shops tout all sorts of boots and thermals along Grampian Road, the beating, pub-fringed artery of the town. In winter, Aviemore also acts as the gateway to the CairnGorm Mountain – certainly the most impressive ski area in the United Kingdom.

Outdoor activities

The great Scottish outdoors around Aviemore holiday homes

If there's 1 reason that Aviemore holiday homes fill to bursting from spring to autumn, it's the wild natural playground that unfolds all around them. Hiking paths weave and wiggle all throughout the Cairngorms National Park, edging up to peaks like Ben Macdui – the 2nd highest in the UK – and ravine-rented Braeriach – the 3rd highest. Mountain bikers can often be seen whizzing down the muddy, boulder-speckled fells, too. Managed trails for 2-wheelers can be found at the Glenlivet Estate, while wilder routes squeeze through the pines of the Anagach Woods. When the snows fall, the CairnGorm Mountain opens its pistes. It's the largest and busiest ski area in the country, offering T-bar lifts and gully runs in a season that typically has good conditions from December to March.

Food & drink

Sample Scottish delicacies near Aviemore holiday rentals

Grab a wee dram of whisky and a platter of hearty haggis, and you can start to make your way through the culinary treats of the Scottish Highlands, in Aviemore. This is a great place to taste the earthy produce that's made in the rugged region. The gastropubs on Grampian Road are the place to go for your hit of the national dish. That's haggis – a spiced mince of sheep innards and veg, usually served with Ayrshire potatoes and a frothy ale. North Sea haddock is matched perfectly with hand-cut chips, too, while a tipple of local malt whisky is a fitting warmer after a day on the pistes – strong, fiery and rich.
