Whats on in The Summer

Hi Folks

Well the Summer is here and the sun is peaking out today after a week of not so nice weather, Aviemore is really busy and everyone seems to be having a great time.

We have recently lauched our New property Otter Pool Lodge which we start letting from September 11th (already booked tho) but it seems to have captured your imagination as well as ours, going by the bookings so far.

There is lots on in Badenoch and Strathspey over the Summer and I thought for those of you who are coming or are thinking of coming I would put this link on so you know were to go and what to look out for
