The three of us drove in on a Saturday evening. We ended up staying in the MacDonald Aviemore Highland Resort. It was one of those big resorts that can accommodate to every need. We ate at a Cairngorm Hotel restaurant next door. Will and I had our chance to eat our haggis, and drink some Scotch. I do not see what all the commotion is about, haggis is delicious. Afterwards, I hung around the pub and listened to some live music.
I woke up early on Sunday and decided to drive around and see the town before the stores opened. Aveimore is a destination for holiday travelers as it is located in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. It is quite apparent that this once little town is now growing fast. Some of the roads would have the older, quaint little houses while others would have the new development style layout. The town overall was beautiful. Unfortunately, we could not stay long and we headed out late morning to make our way to Edinburgh.
I was unable to find out where or even if my old family foundations still existed. Maybe next time...
