Join us for the most anticipated comedy event in the Highlands!

An evening full of laughter and world-class comedy is set to take place at Macdonald Aviemore Resort this summer. The Highland Comedy Club will be hosting its inaugural event on Saturday, June 22, featuring a lineup of the UKs most celebrated comedy acts, including headliner Connor Burns who sold-out his shows at the 2023 Edinburgh Fringe.

This premier event is set to captivate and entertain audiences and will be hosted by internationally acclaimed Ray Bradshaw.

For locals of Aviemore, the Resort is pulling out all the stops, with a special ticket offer for the show (£18) or a dinner and show combination (£40). Enjoy being serenaded by local artist Dylan Tierney before heading through for the premier event.

On top of this, the Resort is also offering exclusive getaway packages for the event to complement the comedy experience. Starting from £250, for one or two nights, these packages include top-tier comedy show tickets, dining, breakfast, and 4-star accommodations for two guests.
Guests will also enjoy unlimited access to the Resort’s leisure facilities, with the two-night package offering additional perks such as cinema passes and exclusive entry to the tartan army fan zone for the Scotland vs Hungary Euro 2023 match.

The Macdonald Aviemore Resort offers an array of experiences for everyone, from show-only or show and dinner combo options to complete getaway packages, set against the scenic beauty of Aviemore at the heart of Cairngorm National Park.

We invite you to join us for a celebration of Ballindalloch Distillery, Whisky and Estate, an unmissable afternoon of whisky, food, music and fun.

Come and explore our beautiful Single Estate Distillery and discover what makes us unique in Speyside: our traditional manual production process and the circular economy within the Estate of our natural resources and by-products. From the very outset, the production of our Whisky was always destined to be “hands on”. With a clear commitment to tradition, the Single Estate nature of our process allows us to control every aspect of Whisky making. From the barley we grow at our Home Farm to the draff fed back to cattle across the Estate, we craft our Whisky in a way that generations past would have recognised.

Your ticket includes access to the Distillery production and operational areas. You will be joining us for an afternoon of Ballindalloch Single Malt Whisky drams, food from our Ballindalloch BBQ featuring Aberdeen Angus meat, the breed closely associated with Ballindalloch (a delicious vegan option will be available too) and tasty home-bakes from Lagmore Café.

As a family owned and working estate, the Macpherson-Grants invite you to experience many aspects of estate life through various fun activities. We will have archery, fly-fishing demonstrations (and for you to try), golf challenges, live music, and much more. Also, as Chieftain of the Aberlour Highland Games, current Laird, Guy Macpherson-Grant is looking forward to watching you join in some caber tossing and other Games sports. With so much to see & do, we guarantee you a great afternoon at Ballindalloch.

Join us this Easter break from the 29th March- 15th April, where you can explore over 20 attractions and lots of Easter themed activity EGGS-tras all included in the ticket price!

It’s long been said that Cubans sing when they speak, dance when they walk, and woo with a love song.

So it should be of little surprise that The Cuban Brothers’ peerless funk soul review blends sexy, SOULFUL MUSIC, with jaw-dropping B-BOY ACTION and RIOTOUS COMEDY.

From humble beginnings, Miguel Mantovani, Young Dominico and Kengo San have built Los Hermanos Cubanos – The Cuban Brothers – into a legendary outfit that continuously sells out shows across the globe.

The Brothers have recently been extending their family, with Shaka Loves You becoming honorary members and touring together.

This will be kick ass. And will sell out. Don’t hang about for tickets.

Come and spend a night in and around our tipi, enjoying pizzas and drinks and good tunes with friends and family. We have a choice of four different delicious pizzas (vegetarian options available), a range of local drinks, spirits and snacks and some Smores to toast on the fire.

There is plenty of fun around our tipi for the kiddies too. Our next pizza nights are during the Easter holidays on Thursday 4th April and Thursday 11th April, then they will be returning for the summer holidays.

Booking is essential so please get in touch to find a time that suits. We hope to see you there!
