North Hop



Our first North Hop Aviemore festival in February 2017 was so good we are back for a second instalment in November! Join us once again at Macdonald Aviemore Resort for a feast of the senses as we bring together some of the finest food, drink and music from across Scotland and possibly beyond…

The theme is après ski and the beers are already chilling (well brewing!) so round up the troops and assemble for another awesome weekend in Aviemore!

This time we have added a Friday evening session and once again have got special accommodation deals in place, along with late night buses back to Inverness via Carrbridge and Tomatin (see below for booking details).
