Escape to Aviemore This Spring

Escape to Aviemore This Spring

Posted by Hilton Coylumbridge, April, 2015

We’re of course biased when it comes to recommending Aviemore as the perfect place to bring the family at any time of the year. But when spring rolls around and you’re looking for that perfect escape that’s guaranteed to satisfy without breaking the bank, we’re genuinely blessed with a whole army of opportunities in our immediate surroundings.

The weather may still be on the slightly unpredictable side, but come rain or shine you’re guaranteed to find good times at every turn when bringing the family to Aviemore this spring. And even if the elements do take a turn for the worse, there’s always our family friendly hotel to give you that well-deserved taste of the high life after a rather brutal British winter!

In terms of our top picks for Aviemore trips during spring, check out any of these tried and tested favourites for guaranteed good times:

Strathspey Railway Behind the Scenes Operational Tour

It’s one thing to see the magic of the great Strathspey Railway up and running in the flesh, but another entirely to get a behind-the-scenes insights into the carriages, engines and working practices dating back to the 1800s. Aviemore is one of the only places in the world where the whole family can take this kind of journey back in time and learn first-hand about trains and carriages that have been in operation for well over a century.

And best of all, it’s a totally free event scheduled to be held throughout spring and beyond – right up to October 3 in fact. Head over to http://www.strathspeyrailway.co.uk/shed-visits/ for more information.

Music in The Forest at Glenmore

Last up, if you’ve ever liked the idea of being transported back to a time of myth, magic and folklore with nothing but the natural beauty of Scotland all around you, we cannot recommend this musical experience highly enough. Traditional bluegrass and folk music performed in the cosiest setting in Glenmore, flanked on all sides by mountains and forests – pure magic for the whole family.

Event runs between April 10 and April 25, full details can be found at http://facebook.com/pinemartenbarglenmore – free entry for the whole family!
