What’s On W in december

elcome to the Cairngorms National Park and the December edition of the What’s On, the free events guide.

To help you make the most of your time here we’ve put together an essential guide packed with what’s happening in the area. We’ve got some great ideas for things to do, places to see, where to eat and drink, and places to stay. The Cairngorms is a brilliant place to be over the festive season. Where else can you bump into Santa and his friendly reindeer multiple times in the run up to Christmas? Laugh out loud at the Pantomime at Macdonald Aviemore Resort. Do all your Christmas Shopping at one of the many Christmas Craft Fairs popping up at villages all around the Cairngorms. Dance your socks off to live bands in cosy pubs. To get fully into the Christmas Spirit run Disability Snowsport’s famous Santa Run when hundreds of Santa’s and their little elves take to the streets of Aviemore. Then take in a Christmas parade with Santa and the Reindeer, carols, gluhwein and plenty of Christmas cheer. Finally see in the New Year with a good old shindig at a local ceilidh and some fireworks and a dram at midnight. The What’s On team wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! The Cairngorms National Park has something for everyone.
