Macdonald Aviemore's is offering a Family Festive Day out and it promises to be an experience the whole family can enjoy. Indulge in a whimsical blend of panto, soft play, dinner, and evening entertainment in the Osprey Arena, – all for just £50 per adult, and £25 per child.

Open your imagination and walk into a winter wonderland with snow-covered mountains, festive treats and indulgent hot chocolate to hand, and Santa's grotto at the heart of serene woodland.

The festive atmosphere of Aviemore – the only place in the UK that you'll find a free-range reindeer herd – is an idyllic setting for an extensive live family entertainment programme with this year's festive panto at the forefront.
