Our Favourite Videos Of Aviemore To Entice You For A Short Stay

Posted by Hilton Coylumbridge, February, 2015

Here at Hilton Coylumbridge, we’re often asked to summarise what it is about Aviemore and the surrounding areas that makes it such a genuine delight for short breaks in Scotland. Unsurprisingly, we could quite happily rave about each and every wonderful activity in the area, the stunning beauty of the Cairngorms and the sumptuous delights of our own hotel until the cows come home, but in order to gain a real understanding of what makes our home so special, you have to see it for yourself.

That’s why we regularly point our guests and curious query-makers alike in the direction of some of our favourite videos, which really encapsulate what’s on offer and why you’ll be glad you came to our hotel in Aviemore. Photographs, guides and articles are all well and good, but to get a taste for the real Aviemore you need to see it come to life.

We’re sure you’ll agree, it’s pure poetry in motion!

Aviemore and Cairngorms

In this video, you’ll get a sneak peak at the stunning Cairngorms National Park in all its glory, which is arguably the most astounding park of its kind in the UK. Breathtakingly beautiful, wildly untamed and bursting with opportunities for adventure and exploration, there’s no better place to get back in touch with life’s simpler, natural pleasures.

Whether it’s taking the kids for a spot of wildlife-watching, strapping on your boots for a half-day hike or soaking up the splendour of a quite strikingly beautiful loch, you’ll find it all at your fingertips during a stay in Aviemore. What’s more, if you’re lucky enough to time your visit with Scotland’s uncharacteristically predictable winter, you’ll also have easy access to what are undeniably the very best ski opportunities in the whole of Great Britain.

Take a look for yourself – you’ll see why we have such pride in the region:

Strathspey Railway Steam

Just what is it about the sight, sound and general experience of a classic steam locomotive that sends adults back to their childhood and children into a whole new world of pure fantasy?

One of our absolute favourite videos of Aviemore delves into what’s perhaps the most iconic and highly-celebrated family days out in the whole of the region – the Strathspey steam railway route. The only thing better than stepping aboard a historic and wholly exciting locomotive like this is doing so in the blissful knowledge that in real terms, you have nowhere to go and no time you need to get there by!

Instead, it’s simply a case of sitting back, relaxing and watching the natural beauty around you whizz by. Better yet, there’s no time of the year the scenery isn’t absolutely stunning!

Cairngorms Reindeer Centre

Last but not least, we of course couldn’t list our favourite videos of Aviemore without including a gentle nod to the glorious reindeer that make the nearby Cairngorms Reindeer Centre such an absolute delight for the whole family. Whether the festive season is in full swing or the glorious countryside if bathed in beautiful sunshine, it’s a uniquely captivating sight and an experience you’ll never forget.
