The local area guide to living in Aviemore

Up until the 1960s, Aviemore was a quiet little town hidden away in the wilds of the Cairngorms National Park. However, a boom in the popularity of skiing in the UK saw it transformed into the UK’s leading ski destination, with people flocking from all over the country to test the hills of the Cairngorm Mountains. Aviemore isn’t just popular during the winter months either; cyclists, walkers, and climbers visit throughout the year to make the most of the gorgeous scenery and rugged hills. The popularity of Aviemore as a tourist destination has brought a plenty of shops, bars, restaurants and cafes to the town, as well as some good employment opportunities.

The town is perfect for those who love nature, being surrounded by some of Scotland’s most beautiful scenery, and offers lots of outdoors entertainment in the form of clay pigeon shooting, white water rafting, horse riding, mountain biking and much more. It’s also wonderful for wildlife fans: red squirrels, ospreys, reindeer, and other exotic creatures can often be seen.
