  • My girlfriend and I did a beginner's sailing lesson here last weekend. It was brilliant! The weather was not good on Saturday but they were very accommodating and let us postpone it until Sunday. Jamie our instructor was really friendly and patient and gave us loads of tips. Also had a great chat with Scott! Great guy. Would thoroughly recommend and we hope to go back soon! Thanks guys
  • Great setting, great beach and great for watersports but I'd avoid during very hot weather as this can attract the young beer brigade. Upstairs you can get coffee and snacks and they have a great selection of biscuits, cakes and ice creams to choose from. Views from the outside seating area are stunning. Staff are friendly and helpful and will do all they can to make your day best possible.
  • 2nd time out in a kayak. Awesome as last time. Fine mountain backdrop.
  • On a good day this place is definitely worth the visit. Great beach and plenty of watersports.
  • Beautiful place to walk and look at the views. Great place for kids.

Where to stay in Aviemore

Aviemore is a resort area inside the Glenmore Forest Park protected area. Most lodging, both hotel chains and major resorts, are concentrated around the town's main road and the River Spey. Consider a B&B or guesthouse slightly deeper in the park from Aviemore. These offer luxury stays among what feels like untouched natural scenery.
