The Macdonald Resort 'Activity Centre' offers non-residents a 3 day swimming pass which was reasonably priced. I don't believe you can pay a cheaper price for just one days swim. We visited with a young family of toddlers, but the pool was enjoyed by all ages. The pool has a beach entrance, curling round to a 25m laned pool of... More

Paid for a three day pass for the swimming pool. Good value although try to swim during the day when the wave machine is on (once an hour). At night most of the main pool is roped off for lessons. There is also a steam room and a sauna. Worth the money though - worked out about £10 each for... More

My friends and I were staying in Aviemore and wanted to take our two 2 year olds swimming. It was £10 for an adult swim and £15 for a child.....The lady on reception said this was because it was half term holidays and the price included soft play etc. but we didn't want all of that, we just wanted a...

The meal was lovely. We had a variety of food - lamb, chicken, burgers, steak which was all tasty. One steak had to go back as it was overcooked but it was replaced with no fuss. There was a good choice and prices were reasonable. Our only complaint would be the time it took to be served. It seemed understaffed... More

Went here for the first time today. It is advertised as a swimming pool but in reality it is a leisure pool, nothing more and definitely not possible to do any kind of swimming whatsoever. The pool itself is a U-shape and 1.5m at deepest, 1 meter deep at half way and the other 50% of the pool is maybe... More

Only a shop and a coffee shop open when we visited. Everything else shut. The cinema was going to open at 4.00pm. I am sure it must be better during the main season. Don't bother coming up here in November, best to stick to village below.
