Looking for something to do in the Cairngorms National Park? Don’t miss out on the Grantown Highland Games on Sunday 26th August  – there’ll be highland dancing, bagpipes and bands plus all the traditional Highland Games – including my personal favourite – the tug of war!

Moray Walking & Outdoor Festival

From Friday 15 to Sunday 24 June 2018, whether it’s a gentle amble or an outdoor challenge there’s something for everyone in this year’s Moray Walking & Outdoor Festival.  Voted one of the top 10 walking festival in Britain by The Daily Telegraph the festival also offers a whole lot more!   From rowing to writing and surfing to cycling plus events that uncover the cultural, historical, archaeological, architectural, natural and landscape heritage of Moray.  All events are held close to Grantown-on-Spey and the Cairngorms National Park.

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.
