If you choose to be active there will be loads to do over the weekend, from bug walks to white water rafting to pinemarten watching… the list is growing and will be updated as we confirm more activities. This area of the country has the highest concentration of outdoor activity providers in the UK, with 75 of them within a few square miles. With so much unspoilt natural landscape, it also has some of the best opportunities for seeing some of the UK’s rarest and most beautiful creatures.

Some activities will be on-site, but many are taking place all around the Rothiemurchus area. We will be working with the guides and instructors to organise transport to and from any off-site activities to help keep transport arrangements nice and simple.

Among the activities you can expect will be

  • Guided wildlife walks
  • Starlab planetarium shows
  • Solar observing
  • Make & take activities
  • Teddy bear stories
  • Bug and plant walks
  • Mountain walks
  • Fire by friction
  • Medicine and plants
  • River safaris
  • Rafting
  • Loch canoeing
  • Gorgewalks
  • Climbing
  • Mountain bike skills course

Many activities and shows will be included in your ticket, some will require you to sign up in advance, other you just turn up and a few are offered to you at a special festival rate. Under 18s will need to be accompanied by an adult.

We are also pleased to be working with Glenmore Lodge, Scotland's National Outdoor Adventure Centre to provide a choice of activities. Details to follow but please check out their website in the meantime. www.glenmorelodge.org.uk
