Aviemore is a town and tourist resort, situated within the Cairngorms National Park in the Highlands of Scotland. Kick off your visit on the 3rd (Fri): kick back and relax at Loch Morlich. Here are some ideas for day two: identify plant and animal life at Cairngorm Reindeer Centre, thendon't miss a visit to Culloden Battlefield, and then look for all kinds of wild species at Aigas Field Centre.
