Events in 2016

2016 sees the Cairngorms National Park host the UKs first resort based snow sports festival – Groove Cairngorm! The weekend festival will be held from 11-13 March 2016 in conjunction with Cairngorm Mountain involving snow sports and entertainment each day up on the mountain followed by apres-ski with live music and world class DJs until the early hours in a big top in Aviemore!  With snow already on the hills the ski-season is expected to be a cracker.

Winter also sees the annual Husky Racing at Aviemore – a truly remarkable site with hundreds of sleds powered by teams of dogs racing along side the beautiful Loch Morlich.  This year the event takes place 23  & 24 January 2016.

Spring brings the Spirit of Speyside Whiskey Festival  from 28 April until 2nd May 2016 followed by the Cairngorms Nature Festival on 14 & 15 May – well worth keeping on eye on what is planned as details become available.

Plus there are the regular Summer favourites – the Grantown Show on 11 August and Grantown Games on 28 August.  The annual Thunder in the Glen takes place from 26 – 29 of August and all the wonderful walks, wildlife and cycling that is available all year round !

We hope to see you in the Highlands in 2016 – do come and visit us if you can.
