Sunset & Sunrise Times for Aviemore In May

Sunset & Sunrise Times for Aviemore In May

Posted by Hilton Coylumbridge, May, 2015

If you haven’t yet taken in an Aviemore sunset…well, let’s just say you haven’t experienced a real sunset. Here at the Hilton Coylumbridge, we’re incredibly lucky to be situated in such a prime plot of Scotland’s most majestic natural real estate, which opens up a million and one opportunities for outdoor recreation and enjoyment. But while there’s so much to be said for the many adrenaline-charged thrills of Aviemore and the surrounding areas, chances are the one memory that will remain with you for life is the breathtaking spectacle of the daily sunrise or sunset.

With the Cairngorms National Park right on your doorstep, it’s really quite impossible to go wrong. Head for higher ground at the right time of day or night and you’ll be treated to a light and colour show the likes of which you’ve never before experienced. Flanked on all sides by the unspoilt beauty of the Scottish Highlands, chances are it will change the way you feel about Scotland forever.

And while the sunrise may occur at a rather painfully early hour in May, take it from us when we say that this is one break-of-dawn breakfast picnic you will never, ever regret making the effort for!

Here’s a quick overview of the times of each sunrise and sunset for Aviemore this month:

Of course there’s not a great deal we can do about the times themselves, but we’d be delighted to point you in the direction of the choice spots to view the spectacle you may otherwise never have found. Rest assured you won’t have to travel far, but once you find that perfect viewpoint and the show begins, the world ‘breathtaking’ just doesn’t seem sufficient.
