Comfortably sleeping 4 people, Appin Lodge is set in a quiet position just 10 minutes from the heart of Aviemore, ideal for those looking for a relaxing break, soaking in the hot tub, time with the family or something more energetic.

The Cairngorms is a natural playground. The area offers incredible walking, cycling routes and fishing and it also has 12 golf courses. It’s even home to the only sled dog centre, and the first permanent bridge-based bungee jump, in the UK. The National Park contains one quarter of Scotland’s native forest; one third of UK land above 600 metres; more breeding farmland waders than the whole of Wales; the largest population of twinflower in Scotland, eighty per cent of the UK’s population of capercaillie.

Wintersports is also very popular within the park, the pull of the mountains white with snow means that winter sports have always played a big part of life in the Cairngorms. Three of Scotland’s five ski centres are located within the Park. Cairn Gorm, The Lecht and Glenshee.

The convenient location of Appin Lodge means its not only easily accessible, but offers something for everyone.

Location

The Cairngorms National Park is absolutely full of scenic variety and endless natural wonders for you to enjoy. The rare wildlife stronghold of the National park, and a landscape shaped by the ice ages makes this location an exciting and treasure trove of fun to explore.

Ramble across the Cairngorm hills which were formed when the last age covered this country. With the landscapes characterised by high, rounded humps carved through spectacular and deep gorges the variety of geology in the area is truly remarkable. The National park is home to a fantastic array of rare wildlife.

Just over one quarter of Britain's 400+ most rare and endangered wildlife species are protected within the park. If you are lucky (and quiet!) you might spot such species as the osprey, red kite, golden eagle, otter and pine marten, sheltering in amongst the sub-Arctic and mountain plants.

The glens of Isla, Prosen, Clova and Mark are well known destinations for walkers as they are all easily accessible by car. They offer low level walks but also provide access to tougher long distance hikes into the south east section of the park.

As well as the impressive uplands in the area the lochs and rivers in the region are home to some world class salmon fishing, wildlife and habitats making it yet another area not to be missed. The waters offer a variety of scenic delights including gorges, waterfalls and tranquil expanses of streams.

For woodland and forest walks visit Loch an Eilein on the Rothiemurchus Estate in the heart of Caledonian Pine Forest. Or if you are in search of a beach visit Loch Morlich where the sandy expanse proves popular with fisherman and water sports enthusiasts.

Many attractions are connected with the area's history or wildlife and are great places to learn more about the natural wonders that surround you. Whether you have a passion for wildlife, whisky or walking, or simply want to have fun, you will never be short of something new to experience in this wonderful area of The Cairngorms National Park.
