Tips from the owners

Local things to do, places to eat and attractions not to be missed.

  • If you are keen on thrills and spills, head for Landmark Forest Adventure Park, only a 15-minute drive away.

  • Animal lovers won’t want to miss the Highland Wildlife Park, which is home to polar bears and snow leopards, among others.

  • Young speed demons aged over eight will love Aviemore Kart Raceway, just two miles from the resort.

  • Take an aerial ride through the forest at Zip Trek Park Aviemore, a ten-minute drive from the resort.

  • There are loads of lochs in the area, but if you want some sand beneath your toes or to do some water sports, head to Loch Morlich beach, seven miles away.
