If you want more space and privacy, you will love Macdonald Aviemore Resort’s 4-star Luxury Woodland Lodges hidden amongst ancient Caledonian pine forests. After a day spent exploring the Cairngorms National Park, you can choose to whip up a tasty meal in your kitchen, order a pizza delivery from the resort’s Italian restaurant or eat out at one of the resort’s restaurants.

On a warm summer evening you can enjoy a drink on your own private deck and in winter snuggle up in front of the cosy wood-burning stove.
