Scouring the green pastures and beyond to find things to do in Aviemore is an easy task. Situated in the Cairngorms, with Glenmore Forest, the Caledonian Forest and at least three Lochs within easy reach, Aviemore and its surrounding areas are perfectly placed for any sort of outdoor holiday. Pitch up here and you’ll see your itinerary fill quicker than you can say “two whiskeys”.

If walking is your thing, take on one of Britain’s highest peaks – Cairngorm Mountain – with stunning views often reaching as far as Ben Nevis, more than 50 miles away. Alternatively, take to the ancient Caledonian Forest to explore the woodlands that once blanketed huge areas of Scotland. The silence is hard to ignore, but even better are the sights and smells of a truly established forest. 

For other things to do in Aviemore, get on motorised wheels with Quad Treks Aviemore to experience the Cairngorms National Park in a slightly more exhilarating fashion. Led by fully trained professionals, you’ll take on all sorts of terrain as you traverse the Caledonian Forest. To get amongst the treetops, visit the Treezone Aerial Adventure Course where you will negotiate zip wires, tight ropes, gap jumps and more to criss-cross through the trees.
