Cairngorm Hotel, Aviemore

This postcard shows a view of the Cairngorm Hotel in the Speyside town of Aviemore. The hotel was built around the turn of the twentieth century, to coincide with the town's development into an important railway junction. By 1892, Aviemore had rail links to Perth, Inverness and Forres. With its advantageous geographical location, surrounded by the Cairngorm mountain range, the town evolved into a popular mountain resort. Aviemore today is a thriving tourist resort, offering winter sports and outdoor activities all year round. The Cairngorm Hotel, among others, still plays host to the town's visitors
