The Macdonald Aviemore Resort is set within a scenic, magical part of the Scottish Highlands, in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park.
Renowned golf course architect Dave Thomas was commissioned to build in one of the most picturesque locations on offer in Scotland. To match his brief, he has created the Spey Valley Championship Golf Course, a layout that is challenging, particularly at 7,118 yards from the medal tees, but is not so difficult that the average golfer cannot enjoy the stunning scenery.
Accommodation consists of the 4-star Macdonald Aviemore Hotel and the Highlands Hotel which are located just 5 minutes from the golf course. Voted as one of the best golfing resorts in Scotland the Macdonald Aviemore Resort is a perfect option for a golf break in the Scottish Highlands.MORE ABOUT THE HOTEL
Dinner- Bed & Breakfast (1 night)
At the Aviemore Resort, there are two excellent hotels to choose from; accommodation is available in either the 4* Macdonald Highlands Hotel or the 4* Macdonald Aviemore Hotel, both of which are firm favourites with our golf experts.
The Macdonald Highland Hotel offers its patrons the customs and service of a top Scottish venue and has been tastefully designed and furnished in a contemporary, stylish fashion.
Guests are guaranteed the best in comfort and convenience as a base to experience all that Aviemore resort and its surroundings have to offer.
With all that is on offer in Aviemore, a reliable and comfortable base is crucial to recover from the exertion of all the activities, and the Macdonald Aviemore Highland Resort provides just that.
Aviemore can leave you feeling a bit worn out, so take advantage of the Vital Beauty Spa, which offers a full range of wellness and beauty treatments for both men and women. From hot stone therapy to special bridal packages, allow the specially trained staff at the spa to pamper properly. For the more active, there is a state-of-the-art gym, with the latest in fitness technology, and an excellent swimming pool.
The resort is famous for its outdoor activities including golf, watersports, and winter sports or ascend the mountain on the Cairngorm Funicular, Scotland's highest mountain railway.
Dining options include the Aspects Restaurant, the sophisticated signature restaurant for the best in local cuisine. Maybe enjoy a night-cap in The Laggan, whisky and cocktail bar, with 100 single malts on offer, including over 60 from the Speyside area, even the connoisseur will be spoiled for choice.
Opened in July 2006, Spey Valley will mature further still, and is being tipped for recognition among the top Scottish courses. The signature hole will undoubtedly be the par-5 fifth hole; measuring 641 yards, it is unlikely that even the longest out there will be having a go at the green. It is reasonable to view Spey Valley as a hidden Scottish Gem, but it seems unlikely that it will remain that way.
As you would expect from Dave Thomas, this is a ‘proper' golf course, and accompanied by the vivid purple heather and towering peaks of the Cairngorms National Park, it becomes a truly awesome place.
