Welcome, one and all, to
This web site is a celebration of the old and wonderful
Aviemore and it's famous Highland resort centre,
and is a collection of photos, stories and memories from around the world since
it's inception in the
1960's through to the late 1990's.
Do you remember old Aviemore of the 60s/70s/80s/90s ? “The Centre”, Santa Claus Land,
the Strathspey, Badenoch, Post House and Freedom-Inn hotels?
How about the Pinewood restaurant and shops, the Chalets Motel,
the wonderful "La Pigalle" nightclub/discotheque and last, but not least,
the fabulous ICE RINK?
Did you work there? Did you spend your holidays there?
Did you have a holiday romance or perhaps "fall in love" there?
Do you remember how fabulous it used to be when Aviemore was a traditional
and family resort? This new website needs photos, stories and memories
to share with everyone. Please help us get this new website up and running
and have your say,
as a tribute to the “Auld Aviemore” of yesteryear.
Please send your photos, letters, news cuttings or old brochures, tickets - in
fact anything at all you think would
be of interest to us, or even if you'd just like to show your holiday snaps
(preferably showing the centre
or town, with a date if possible) and please include a return address if you
would like us to return them to you.
