What to do with the kids in and around Aviemore

Landmark – Amazing fun for all the family at this forest adventure park in Carrbridge, only a 10 minute drive from Aviemore.  Personal favourites are the waterslides, rollercoaster and the tree top trail.

Loch Morlich Watersports – Only 10 minutes from Aviemore, enjoy getting out on the water on kayaks, canoes, windsurfs and sailing boats.  Lessons are available if required and the view from the beach of the Cairngorm Mountains is stunning.  The Boat House on the beach also has a cafe, toilet and changing facilities.

Rothiemurchus Estate – Huge range of activities including feed the deer and a hairy coo safari, as well as superb walking and cycling trails, a top notch visitor centre with cafe and shop, this is a must visit if you are in Aviemore.

The Cairngorm Reindeer – Not just for Christmas!  Kids love to see the tame herd of reindeer at Glenmore.  For little ones there is a paddock they can visit and learn about reindeer, as well as an elves house and Santa’s Bothy.  For older ones a hill trip is possible to visit the herd which includes a short drive in your car in convoy then 20-30 minute walk up to the herd.

The Fun House, Coylumbridge – Weather bad?  Kids restless?  Take them to the Fun House at Coylumbridge where they can burn off energy in the treehouse themed soft play.  They also have mini golf, cafe/diner, toddler area and my personal favourite the quiet room!

Aviemore Raceway – Cracking fun for 8 years and up!  New in 2016 this is a state of the art go-cart facility on the North edge of the village and only a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive from Carn Mhor.  You can arrive and drive, or make a group booking in advance.
