Carve Carrbridge

Next weekend is Carve Carrbridge, the Scottish Open Chainsaw Carving Competition at Carrbridge. It is an amazing site to see large pieces of wood become eagles, golfers, bears or whatever else they can imagine! The scultures are auctioned off at the end of the day so you can get your self a lovely garden ornament if you can get it home!! People come from all over the world to compete and see this amazing event.

If you want to see it then we have Eagle Lodge or Ptarmigna Lodge still free.

Thunder in the Glen

This weekend is the "Thunder in the Glen" weekend where thousands of Harley-Davidson enthusiasts meet up and ride out. They normally ride out from Aviemore at noon on Saturday which is a magnificanet sight, if you can catch it, they head to Grantown-on-Spey where you can see them too.

We have Eagle Lodge still free this weekend if you want to catch it!

We have also just launched our two new Lodges, Eagle Lodge and The Shieling. Eagle Lodge sleeps 8 and The Shieling sleeps up to 12. We have a new launch promotion of 30% off the advertised rate for the first 5 full week bookings at these lodges.

Also worth a small mention is the 2 Osprey chicks this year from Loch Garton RSPB reserve have started their migration South and can be tracked by satellite here http://www.rspb.org.uk/wildlife/tracking/lochgartenospreys/index.asp

get organised and book now for 2009!

People who have stayed at Mountain Bear Lodge say it is better than the pictures on the web site, even if it did rain it didn't matter because the Lodge was so fantastic. The best thing about the holiday was the Lodge and that the Lodge made the holiday "it had it's own character" and "was like part of the family". We have so many bookings for this Lodge that every day we disappoint people as the dates they want are already booked.

So this is a bit of advice - get organised and book now for 2009. Christmas week is still available as are many weeks later in the year. Get your family and friends together and decide when you want to get together next year or even 2010 and book Mountain Bear Lodge well in advance so we don't have to disappoint anybody!!
