About fifteen minutes south of Aviemore just off the A9 this is a great base for exploring the Cairngorms National Park. In the winter this is the heart of UK skiing. In the summer the area offers some of the most beautiful views in the whole UK.
In the area are many attractions. We went to Aviemore which is a pleasant little mainly tourist town that offers a lot of outdoor shops as well as bakers, butchers and even a small Tesco. We also visited the battlefields of Culloden which are just South of Inverness. The Culloden site is run by the National Trust for Scotland, the English version will also get you access, and has a great visitors centre. You can also walk the battlefields where the battle lines are marked with flags. This helps you understand the scale of things as they were. Remember this is a war grave site and should be treated with respect.
Invernahavon site is excellent, large hard-standing pitches a decent toilet block, drive over motorhome drain and WIFI. There are lodges for rent, some with hot tubs on their terraces. As well as this there are three gypsy caravans on site that are for rent, check them out at Wild Cat Gypsy Caravans www.wildcatgypsycaravans.co.uk
Leave the site visa the main gate and turn right and you will come to a gate that allows acces to the forest. Walks are marked on posts and easy to follow. Keep an eye out for the deer and stags that abound in this area.
This is one we will be doing again for sure.
