Family groups find us an ideal location to get away and have fun under one roof. Being close to Aviemore, and centrally located in the Cairngorms National Park and with no more babysitting worries as everyone is under one roof, the central position allows easy access to a wide variety of child orientated activities.

Family Reunions

It is easy to get to us from anywhere because we are only 45 minutes form Inverness airport and 15 minutes from Aviemore which has a daily direct train from London. So families can meet up here and with so much to do, everyone can be catered for.

We work closely with Craggan Outdoors – a multi-activity about 3 miles away. They can plan activities for you group according to your needs.

Wedding Parties

A number of couples have used Abernethy Bunkhouse as a base for their wedding celebrations with Bed & Breakfast or hotel accommodation nearby for those who wants something more luxurious!


I am afraid that though we are always happy to see children at our hostel there are no special facilities. You are welcome to bring you own travel cot.

What can we do?

There are lots of ideas for things to do here and also we mention places where you may be able to eat out all together at a very reasonable rate if you get in touch with the restaurant early enough!
