3 Nights in the Cairngorms!

Christmas is back!  And we are going back to Cairngorm Lodge near Aviemore to celebrate a proper Christmas after the gap of 2020, and hope that one of Santa's best friends can find our hideout for the weekend.....

We are staying at a great hostel in an amazing location, nestled within the area that is Rothiemurchus - one of the last large areas of Caledonian pine forest with lots of easy walking to discover.  Our base is also at the foot of the northern Cairngorms which has numerous options for going up a mountain or two if that takes your fancy.  What we do is very much up to the weather gods but we will try and keep them happy.

This weekend is also your annual opportunity to dig out those Christmas jumpers, and any other fancy seasonal outfit you may have, to wow our guest who will be along to entertain(!) and give out the secret santa presents on Saturday evening; In years past we have seen more and more distant relatives of the Santa family come along and cause mayhem, as Santa never came back after the first Scottish Christmas event many years ago.....

One ask before you hit the Add To Cart button... could you see yourself as the chef one night? As this is an event for over 30 guys we're not asking you to go it alone, however can you create a menu to tantalise taste buds? If this could be you message the leader!

Dogs: Please note this event is not suitable for dogs.
