There are two ways to do the great outdoors.
You can rough it like Bear Grylls.
Or do it in comfort and style with this Big Deal from the recently refurbished Macdonald Aviemore Resort in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park.
The Cairngorms are wild and unspoilt, with towering mountains, rippling lochs and hidden valleys. It’s the perfect all-round adventure playground.
Make the most of Scotland’s outdoor playground from the comfort of a Luxury Woodland Lodge.
Macdonald Aviemore Resort has recently had a £5 million investment. The excellent facilities include a brand new clubhouse at Macdonald Spey Valley Championship Golf Course; a fantastic leisure centre with lagoon pool and a great range of outdoor activities in partnership with Craggan Outdoors.
Two or three night break
This offer is for up to six people to enjoy a two or three night stay in a four star Luxury Woodland Lodge.
Nestled among ancient Caledonian pine forests, the deluxe Highland lodges combine luxury with outdoor living.
After a day of adventuring in the surrounding mountains, you can store your bikes in the woodshed, before settling into your woodland home-from-home in front of a cosy wood-burning stove.
Or take a stroll to one of the nearby resort lodges or order in a pizza delivery from Giovanni’s – the resort’s onsite Italian.
Each of the lodges sleeps up to six people in three en-suite bedrooms.
Lodges feature a living room with flat screen TV and DVD player; a gallery kitchen with a four ring hob, microwave, fridge, toaster, Espresso coffee machine, tableware and cutlery.
The three bedroom lodges have wood burning stoves and dishwashers along with storage for bikes and free Wi-Fi powered by The Cloud.
There is a £90 per night per lodge supplement for Friday and Saturday night stays.
See & do
With the Cairngorms on the doorstep, there is no shortage of outdoor activities to enjoy in the local area.
Macdonald Aviemore Resort also has plenty to offer.
Luxury brand shopping; 3D cinema viewing; top class restaurants; the new state-of-the-art Aviemore Activity Centre and the Spey Valley Championship Golf Course are all on-site or within easy reach.
At Spey Valley Leisure guests have use of the 25m indoor pool, complete with wave machine and flume.
Macdonald Aviemore Resort has its admirers on TripAdvisor:
‘We have stayed here a few times now since 2007 – we truly love the cabins! We love the area – the town itself is just minutes walk from cabins. The cabin is just luxury and away from it all – the towels are thick and smell fresh; beds are very comfy and clean; the three bedrooms are all ensuite.. It’s roomy and a nice veranda for the cosy night time cocoa under the stars… there are no ovens in the cabin which, for self-catering, I find a little strange but the town centre has some great places to eat…’
Bear Grylls is more than welcome to continue making beds out of twigs and moss.
For those who prefer to enjoy the great outdoors in elegant comfort, this Big Deal on a stay in a Luxury Woodland Lodge at Macdonald Aviemore Resort is just the ticket.
