Aviemore Centre

This postcard show the Aviemore Centre in Speyside. It was built in 1964 in response to the development of the Cairn Gorm ski areas. The centre provided a wide range of services to visitors and residents of Aviemore including a swimming pool, an ice rink, crazy golf and a cinema. However, the architecture of the building attracted much controversy and within only a decade cracks began to appear in the concrete. Interest in the facilities gradually waned and over a period of time the buildings were demolished to allow more profitable use of the land.

Today, the town of Aviemore is once again a thriving holiday resort, offering various facilities to residents and visitors alike
