The Royal Air Force Central Fund is delighted to announce that their recently redeveloped Feshiebridge Lodges are now available for bookings in time for Christmas and New Year. The beautifully-designed holiday and activity accommodation is located in the spectacular Cairngorms National Park and offers RAF Personnel along with their friends and family the opportunity to discover this stunning region of Scotland.

Ross Perriam, CEO of the RAF Central Fund, says:

“As the charity that supports sports and physical activity in the RAF, we very much hope our serving personnel take advantage of our Feshiebridge Lodges. The Cairngorms National Park offers a wonderful range of outdoor activities from mountain biking to skiing, fishing to hiking and our lodges provide the perfect base from which to explore the area.” 

Nestled in picturesque forest surroundings and named after the local wildlife, the accommodation is comprised of four 3-bedroom lodges, a large studio apartment and a spacious 1-bedroom apartment which can double up as a large communal living and dining area for groups. The properties are being managed by Sykes Holiday Cottages ( and can be booked individually or as a block booking with a total capacity of 28 guests (or up to 38 if the sofa beds within the properties are utilised). Available for week-long breaks the lodges have a key safe system to allow for flexible arrival and departure times.
