Aviemore
The Essential
Britain's first ski resort was built in the 1960s and boasts a complex of shops, hotels, entertainment facilities, an ice-skating rink, artificial ski run and swimming pool. All manner of sporting activities are on offer. Unfortunately the tourist capital of the Cairngorms National Park is quite charmless and is a far cry from the beauty of the natural setting within which it lies: to be treated first and foremost as your base camp.
