Aviemore, lying in the Highlands of Scotland in the Cairngorms mountain range, became the UK’s first and foremost ski resort in the 1970’s. This webcam overlooks the Highlands Hotel at the Macdonald Aviemore Highland Resort.
Aviemore is very popular with walkers. For the truly adventurous, a spectacular walk starts from near Aviemore, takes in the Lairig Ghru Pass through the Cairngorms and finishes in Braemar. This is not, however, for the faint-hearted, the inexperienced, or the ill-equipped as the whole walk is 24-miles long and runs through some very remote country. Aviemore also lies at the start, or end, of the Speyside Way, the 65 mile long distance path to the coast at Buckie. Read more...

If it wasn't for tourism you would have no economy.

I grew up in Glasgow and in the around 1969 spent a month at Glenmore Lodge with other schoolgirls. We went in to Aviemore on a couple od days and I have loved the whole region, in my memory, since that time. My family emigrated to Australia in 1972 and I returned with my husband and son in 2001. We lived near Dunbar for 2 1/2 years and visited the Aviemore region frequently. I love this area and it is better in reality than in my imagination.
Aviemore may be a little 'touristy' but I live on the Gold Coast in Queensland and 'tacky tourism'is a way of life.
Enjoy the highlands, including Aviemore. A beautiful place.
